Le nouveau White Stripes fin 2005 ou pour 2006 ?
New White Stripes Material By 2006?
While the Stripes have only just begun the follow-up to Elephant, reports suggest that Jacks collaboration with friend Brendan Benson may hit shops before the end of 2005 and the duo may even tour the record.
Since the release of 2003s Elephant, Jacks done a fair amount of fighting, appearing in Hollywood films, winning awards for his film scores and producing records for other (albeit, legendary) artists, but not producing a huge amount of White Stripes material. In fact, bar their '...Blackpool Lights' DVD, no new material.
However, this may be about to change reports suggest the duo may be about to head back into the studio to finally begin work on their fifth album. Hinting that hes already begun writing the record, Jack explained that he expected the album to be done pretty quick.
"I've done it [this way] for a long time, he told MTV, In my attic and out of my house, making 45s for bands. When bands would come to town, they'd stay at my house and we'd cut an album. [We'd do the same thing with] local Detroit bands.
"I've been doing it for as long as I've been writing, and for as long as I've had bands, I've been recording. I never knew too much about the technical side, I just wanted to get things on tape that were soulful. And that's the same thing with [Loretta Lynns Grammy-winning 'Van Lear Rose]. It was on 8-track, and we did it in 12 days."
And while the album may not see the light of day this year, the new collaboration record from Jack and his fellow Detroiter Brendan Benson is rumoured to be receiving a 2005 release. Its a f*cking brilliant record, Benson told NME, Its really, really good A guy said the other day that he had heard Nirvanas Nevermind four months before it came out and as he was listening to this record he said, This feels just like that. And thats how it feels for me.
We dont want to put out something thats going to eclipse another record. Were thinking late this year or next. I dont know how Jack figures The White Stripes into that. But we want to tour it as well.
All this enthusing has, of course, nothing to do with the fact that Benson also has a solo album and UK tour on the way entitled The Alternative To Love. The album will be released on March 14 and preceded by the single Spit It Out on March 7.
