Jack White Performs Live, Songs From His New Album, Boarding House Reach
Friday, March 23, at 10:00 AM on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic
On Friday, March 23, at 10:00 a.m., Jack White will perform tracks from his new album, Boarding House Reach, on the day of its release, live on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic. This will be one of White’s first live radio sessions supporting the new record, and one of his first live performances in four years.
The session also includes an interview with Jason Bentley during which they discussed hip-hop’s influence on the new record and upcoming touring plans. White also shared how he got back to basics while recording Boarding House Reach.
“Your dream scenario when you’re younger, is if I just had a Stratocaster, this would sound so much better, if I just had this mic, it would sound so much better,” says White. “But, as I learned again what I was doing, those cheap microphones, the cheap equipment I had was very important to getting the sound, the soulfulness of what you’re trying to put down. It doesn’t matter about the microphone…You don’t really even need to know what your doing, you need to know why you’re doing it. You can be very bad at twiddling the knobs and the faders, and all of that, but if you know why you’re doing it – your attitude – is very much a large part of the game.”
Tune in to hear the live performance and interview at 10:00 a.m. PDT, on air, or at KCRW.com. Video of the interview portion will be available on demand at kcrw.com.
