Jack White has hinted that he may release his first solo album in 2010.

Though he reiterated he prefers not to work with a timeframe, the White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather man confirmed that he is still planning to release a solo record, which he says will come out “eventually” and “for sure”.

He also told Rolling Stone that he is thinking about playing all of the instruments on the album himself.

“I’ve never done that [played everything],” White explained. “I thought about that. That might be the challenge – to differentiate from anything else that I’ve done.”

White added that he doesn’t know when he will begin work on new White Stripes, Raconteurs or Dead Weather material either, but that it could happen sooner rather than later.

“It would be a mistake for me to premeditate anything, even in the next six months, to say what I’m going to do,” he said. “I honestly could be working on a White Stripes [album] in the next two weeks. I have no idea if that is going to happen. And the same with Dead Weather. I’d rather live like this without a calendar in front of me.”
