The White Stripes have announced plans to release a film documenting their 2007 Canadian tour.

The Detroit duo are to unveil "revealing" handheld camera footage of the band on the road throughout their jaunt which saw them play every province in the country.

A release date or title for the project is yet to be revealed.

"When we started, we just didn't know what we were doing, so we just said, 'Film everything, see what happens'," Jack White told Canadian Press.

He added: "I don't think we would want film ourselves like this. I'm pretty anti-reality television and all that ridiculous peeking behind the curtain sort of aspect of entertainment these days.

"But in this case, I don't think it really has that ridiculousness to it. It does have an insight into some of the things that got created and how we went about making a tour like that happen."

During the 'Icky Thump' tour, the pair played a one-note concert in St John's, Newfoundland, dined on raw caribou meat in Iqaluit and performed 'Wheels On The Bus' and 'Hotel Yorba' on a public bus.

"It seems to be much more than a concert film," White explained. "I think Meg (White, drums) and I gave away a lot more than we ever would have imagined we would want to."
