Jack White hints at new White Stripes recording plans

Guitarist says he and Meg 'can get back in the studio'

Jack White has hinted that he and his bandmate Meg are planning to record new White Stripes material soon.

The duo haven’t released an album together since 2007’s ‘Icky Thump’, with Jack concentrating on his other bands including The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather.

However, he told Vanity Fair magazine that the time could be right for more White Stripes material soon.


“We thought we’d do a lot of things that we’d never done: a full tour of Canada, a documentary, coffee table book, live album, a boxset,” he said of The White Stripes‘ activities over the past few years. “It was one long project that took almost three years.”

He then declared: “Now that we’ve gotten a lot of that out of our system, Meg and I can get back in the studio and start fresh.”

The pair recently announced that they are releasing a new White Stripes record player and vinyl set for the Christmas market.
