Jack White continues his wild sonic experimentation on his new single "Corporation." Check out the mostly instrumental track above, via YouTube.
Beginning and ending with the drum groove from Jimi Hendrix's Axis: Bold as Love cut "Little Miss Lover," the song's percussive elements bring a funky vibe. Fuzzed-out guitar licks add a rock edge, the intricate arrangement brings a jazz sensibility, and audio samples scattered throughout the track lend a hip-hop feel. Mixing all these elements together can be risky, but Jack makes it work in his favor. In 5 minutes, the song is a melting pot of styles that can be disconcerting at times. Jack's few vocal lines are almost like slam poetry as he shares, "I'm thinking about starting a corporation. Who's with me?"
