The two-piece with collaborate with cult artist Holly Golightly on the likely lead track...

White Stripes have recorded a new single in the UK to be released within the next few months, NME.COM can reveal.

The band holed up in Toerag studios in Hackney, East London, last month (December) in the time between their gigs at the London Astoria and Forum.

They recorded a slew of songs, but one in particular with Holly Golightly, formerly of cult band Thee Headcoatees and who supported the band on their Astoria date, is likely to be the lead track on any release.

A spokesperson for the band told NME.COM: “They don’t know what they’re going to release from the sessions. The track with Holly Golightly is basically a duet and they want to get a seven inch out eventually, but we’ve no idea yet when or what the title is.”

NME.COM understands that the band may return to the studio later this year to record some of the follow-up to their current ‘White Blood Cells’ album.
