Jack White cannot be stopped.

That much has been true for a while, given the near-mythical status the singer/songwriter/guitarist/label head/cultural icon has attained over the years and his many different musical projects, but it was reinforced recently with the release of Fear of the Dawn, one of two new albums White has up his sleeve for this year.

Released on April 8, the album — a showcase of his primal talents and unique creative spirit — blew away expectations, scoring the top spot on nine different charts of note, specifically Top Album Sales, Top Current Album Sales, Top Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, Record Label Independent Current Albums, Digital Albums, Current Digital Albums, Internet Albums and Vinyl Albums, as well as at No. 4 on the overall Billboard 200.

A news release notes that this marks White’s fourth consecutive debut on top of the Top Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts.

In addition to launching a headlining tour by proposing to — and marrying — his longtime partner Olivia Jean in an onstage moment in Detroit, the promotional machine for Fear of the Dawn keeps on surging. Here’s a video for the album track “What’s’ the Trick,” available via Facebook, directed by Jason Lester and quite heavy on the Nashville scene so dear to White’s heart.
