B BOARDING HOUSE REACH which showcases new tracks including  “Over and Over and Over,” “Connected By Love,” “Respect Commander,” “Corporation” and “Ice Station Zebra” – has swiftly accrued critical applause from around the world:

 

BOARDING HOUSE REACH is a jolt of electricity, mixing hip-hop, gospel, blues,

country and hard rock… It’s thrilling stuff.”

The Washington Post

 

“This is as radical, experimental and mind-expanding of a pop album as you’re likely to hear anytime soon. Let alone by a festival headlining artist.”

American Songwriter

 

“Thrillingly wild.”

AV Club

 

“Very good and pleasingly strange.”

Uproxx

 

Jack White has created something wild, mysterious and unlike anything else around. Bravo, Jack…

The old Jack is still there, certainly, but we’re far more excited about

what the new one has up his sleeves.”

NME (5 Stars)

 

BOARDING HOUSE REACH is easily one of the most layered and compelling releases of 2018, which furthers White’s legacy as one of the few remaining mavericks in music.”

CLASH

 

BOARDING HOUSE REACH carries the electric, kinetic charge of an artist redrawing his frontiers, reinventing himself in real time. This is an album restless in its search for the new, the sound of White’s reinvention in progress, scorching the Earth in anticipation of what might follow.”
