Jack White has revealed that he has recorded new material with both The Dead Weather and The Raconteurs.

The prolific songwriter, who released his debut solo album 'Blunderbuss' in 2012, spoke to Rolling Stone about his life in Nashville, confirming that all members of his other bands are also living in the city.

"We all live in Nashville now. All The Raconteurs and all The Dead Weather live in Nashville now, so we often go on trips together, because we're all just good pals. We've recorded some things, too. And Brendan (Benson) and The Raconteurs just built a new studio right in town, so it's a lot of great inspiration going around."

White also confirmed that he is working on new solo material, though does not have any idea if and when he will release the follow up to 'Blunderbuss'. "I've got about 20 to 25 tracks I'm working on right now," he said. "A lot of songs. So it's a good time for writing for me. I just want to write and bring the Buzzards and Peacocks in and work on some things, and work on the things with no intention of what it's going to be. No competition between the bands. People just keep writing and recording until I decide what it's going to be. And I haven't decided yet, so."

Pushed on what the new solo songs sound like, Jack White added: "It's definitely not one sound. It's definitely several. Like you heard in 'Blunderbuss', there's many different styles there. I don't pick my style and then write a song. I just write whatever comes out of me, and whatever style it is is what it is, and it becomes something later."

Earlier this week it was confirmed that Jack White will be in charge of releasing Jay-Z's new album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail' on vinyl through his Third Man record label.
