Jack White says new album could be out next year

Jack white has confirmed that The White Stripes have completed two new songs for their next studio album, the follow-up to 2007’s Icky Thump.

Speaking to musicradar.com, White says that he has started working with Meg White on new material for their seventh album, which “won’t be too far off. Maybe next year.”

Currently working with his side project The Dead Weather, White says they will start recording properly when he’s back from their tour, saying “We had recorded a couple of songs at the new studio. I talked to her about coming by when I was done in the summer rehearsing with The Dead Weather – I won’t be done in the summer touring with them, but after the summer jaunt.”
