But it won't be out till next year...

White Stripes are in LONDON recording their new album but it won’t be released until next year, NME.COM can reveal.

The duo have been recording at Toerag Studios in Hackney over the past few weeks where they also recorded some demos in January.

A spokesperson told NME.COM they’d chosen to return because it was full of vintage equipment and they could get the sound they wanted.

She continued: “They just really, really like it there. They’re just laying down the bare bones of tracks at the moment, just playing through them. They’re really happy with it so far, but we’re looking at the beginning of next year at the moment (to release it).”

However, she added that the band may also record a new track to release as a single around the time of their appearances at the Carling Weekend Festival at Reading and Leeds.
