Beck will sing just one song on the album, "Heaven's Ladder."

Jack White is a modern-day Renaissance man.

He's a guitar virtuoso, singer, songwriter, arranger, producer, band member, solo artist, music executive, store owner, inventor, snake oil salesman and a whole lot more. Now, Jack is back, and he's ready to unleash another sonic achievement, another eccentric accomplishment to his already remarkable career.
