Jack White Channels Inner Metalhead on Fuzzed Out ‘Fear of the Dawn’ Title Track

There’s something about 2022 with popular hard rock musicians tapping into their inner metalhead. If ever there was such a thing as a Jack White metal song, we may have just got it. The musician’s “Fear of the Dawn” title track certainly shakes the walls a bit.

With a driving, fuzzed out low end and a urgent pace that doesn’t let up, White accentuates the heaviness with a wailing guitar solo mid-song. There’s a definite early era metal vibe coursing through this one. And White also paints it with lyrical darkness as well, opening with the lines, “When the moon is above you / Does it tell you I love you by screaming? / Like when the sun starts to fall / And it’s crushing the walls and the ceiling? Yeah.” And at just over two minutes in length, it rocks you and leaves you wanting more.

White also directed the video, which adds blue, grey and black colored on hues to the performance based clip featuring the singer and his band of musicians. Check out the lyrics for the track and the video below.

Jack White, “Fear of the Dawn” Lyrics (via AZLyrics.com)

When the moon is above you
Does it tell you I love you by screaming?
Like when the sun starts to fall
And it’s crushing the walls and the ceiling? Yeah

I can’t control when the dark
Covers the light from the sparks in the city
To keep us alive
I’m gonna hold you and hide electricity

No more than two cigarettes
Or the light from the match will betray us
But in the dark I can bet
You and I won’t regret that it saved us
Yeah
