Jack White has told NME he feels like "a director" when moving between his various musical projects.

Speaking in an interview with The Dead Weather, which you can watch on the right now, White explained that he influences each band's feel, but said that ultimately the music takes care of itself.

"On everything, I look at myself as a producer on any project, even in this band [The Dead Weather], and I still feel like a producer, even in The White Stripes as well… or perhaps a director," he explained.

"They just all get presented in a different way, like working with Laura Marling or Loretta Lynn, White Stripes or Dead Weather, they just have different names.

"Some come out and get called Jack White and Alicia Keys or The Raconteurs, it doesn't really matter to me, it's just about making those things exist. They tell you what to do. It's about paying attention to what the music wants."
