Jack White is back with his second album of 2022, Entering Heaven Alive, out now via Third Man Records.
Arriving just three months after Fear of the Dawn, the new acoustic album serves as White’s fifth solo record. Where Fear of the Dawn was a “really hard” rock album, Entering Heaven Alive is a “very mellow” acoustic record. You can really hear that sound on the album’s most recent preview, “If I Die Tomorrow.”
With haunting woodwinds and driven acoustic guitar lines, White sings of his mortality in the melancholic tune. The rest of the tracks weave in and out of different acoustic sounds, from whimsical anthems to tender ballads.

“Queen of The Bees” was released alongside Fear Of The Dawn single “Hi-De-Ho (feat. Q-Tip).” “Queen of the Bees” sees White delivering playful lines like, “I feel lonely/ When I’m left all alone/ I feel homely/ When you leave me at home.” Unlike “Hi-De-Ho,” this one is more of a whimsical tune.
Prior to the release of Entering Heaven Alive, Jack White was playing on stage in his hometown, Detroit, where he proposed to and married his longtime partner Olivia Jean.
After dropping his new album, Fear Of The Dawn</em., on Friday, April 8th, Jack White played a show at Detroit’s Masonic Temple Theatre. Serving as a hometown show, the concert was already pretty memorable. But at one point, White invited his girlfriend and Black Belles singer Olivia Jean to come up on stage. Together, Olivia Jean and Jack White performed the White Stripes’ “Hotel Yorba,” and when White sang the line, “let’s get married…,” he pulled out a ring to propose.
