"We'd love to have the second record out within a year of the first one," said White.

Flying in from Paris that morning, the four-piece band joined Iain Baker in the NME studio and When asked if there were going to be any surprises for the London crowd for their O2 Academy Brixton show in the capital that night, to laughter from his bandmates White deadpanned: "We're just gonna hold everyone hostage and threaten them to be energetic, chain them up and fire blanks, machine gun blanks across their heads. We won't tell them they're blanks."

He then jokingly told bandmate Alison Mosshart not to stop him from saying things, adding: "This shit doesn’t happen in The White Stripes, I'll tell you that much."

White then talked about the Third Man Records pop-up store, which is open today and tomorrow in Shoreditch Church in London, which White said will bring "what we have happening in Nashville to London".

The shop will be selling limited-edition vinyl which is only available at the store, with only 100 records of each design on sale. "We've been blowing our minds back in Nashville for the last couple of weeks designing it," said White of the records.

The London Third Man Records pop-up store follows similar events in an "abandoned porno theatre" in Los Angeles as well as New York.

The band also revealed details of their free show at the Shoreditch Church tomorrow (October 31), starting at 8pm.
