Trending Now

The White Stripes could begin work on new material again soon, according to Jack White, who has said he thinks his bandmate Meg White has beaten her issues with anxiety.

Her illness forced the duo to curtail their last world tour in September 2007, and the drummer has hardly appeared in public.

Asked if he wanted to reconvene with Meg any time soon, the White Stripes man told The Times: “I would like to,” before adding: “I don’t think [Meg‘s] anxiety exists any more. But I don’t know.”

White is currently gearing up to release his second album with The Dead Weather, ‘Sea Of Cowards’, on May 10.
