Jack White confirms headlining tour, and I know this because he’s actually my alter ego!

Jack White confirms headlining tour, and I know this because he's actually my alter ego!

I don’t wanna brag, buuuuuut, yeah. Jack White and I are tight. He totes tells me stuff that other people don’t know about. Like, did you know his real name is actually Jonathan J. de la Baptiste Osterhaus-Sampson? Or that even though he says he’s from Detroit, he’s really from Scranton, PA? Or did you even know that he’s planning a huge whirlwind headlining tour in support of his new album, Lazaretto, that’s coming out in June and about which we so ably reported to you nary a week ago? Pssssh-sht! Yeah, right. No you didn’t. What’s a “pitchfork”?

Anyway, so yeah, let’s agree that this is me, exclusively telling you that my friend Jack White is doing all this exclusive stuff, exclusively for TMT. And speaking of exclusive stuff, did you know that, prior to the tour around North America and Europe, ol’ Jack’s gonna be celebrating this year’s Record Store Day (a holiday that he and I invented together while stoned in his hot tub) by “recording, pressing and releasing the World’s Fastest Released Record: a live version of […] Lazaretto’s title track recorded direct-to-acetate that morning in the blue room of Jack’s Third Man Records in Nashville.” Seriously. We talked last night! He’s doing that. Like, the master is gonna be rushed right over to United Record Pressing that same day so that they can “immediately begin pressing 45s to be slipped into sleeves and then whisked back to Third Man” to be sold in the store.

See? You didn’t know that shit. Just admit it. Jack White and I are friends. Fuck, we might even be the same person, for all you know. What’s a “Nobodaddy”?
