Jack White has shared Love Is Selfish, a new track from his second album to be released in 2022, Entering Heaven Alive.

A heartfelt ballad propelled chiefly by stripped-back acoustic guitar, Love Is Selfish marks a softer musical direction for the White Stripes man after his last single, the hard-hitting, fuzz-drenched Taking Me Back. Check it out below.

Entering Heaven Alive is set to arrive on July 22, while Fear of the Dawn – White's first record of 2022 (which Taking Me Back opens) – will land April 8. Both will be released via Third Man Records.

Both albums have reportedly been years in the making, and are set to tap into hugely different inspirations and explore unique themes.

Last week, White dropped a video of him performing Taking Me Back live, in which we were treated to a glimpse of his mystery blue sparkling Telecaster and impressively outfitted 2022 pedalboard.

From what we can make out, that pedalboard – which he'll surely be taking with him when he hits the road this summer for the massive Supply Chain Issues world tour – features a Triplegraph digital octave pedal, which White created with CooperSound Pedals, as well as his custom Mantic Flex, Union Tuber and Transistor Bumble Buzz and Gamechanger Audio Plasma Coil pedals, to name a few.

On the Supply Chain Issues world tour, we're expecting White to be on top form, judging by his performance on Damien Hirst's balcony to celebrate the grand opening of the new Third Man Records store back in September.
