Jack White has just announced his first full UK tour in support of his album Blunderbuss, released earlier this year through his own Third Man Records. Telling Rolling Stone: ‘I've put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colours on my own canvas.’ Having toured with The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather White is no stranger to playing Scotland but this will be the singer/guitarist’s solo debut north of the border.
