White Stripes have named their hugely anticipated new album ‘GET BEHIND ME SATAN’.
The album is released on June 6, preceded by a single ’Blue Orchid’ on May 30.
Plans for live shows are also coming together. Speaking recently in the US, Jack White told the LA Times that they are planning “events” rather than traditional concerts to launch the album. The first time they play in England will be at the Glastonbury Festival in June.
He said: “First we’re going to play where we are not well known. Then if we have time, we will play New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Frankly, we are waiting for technology to advance in the United States before we attempt to perform this record live there.”
For the first, exclusive review of ’Blue Orchid’, see this week’s NME, which is out tomorrow in London (April 12) and nationwide on Wednesday.
