That Jack White....he's at it again!
I think one of the main reasons Jaime and I became friends was because in the first ten minutes of conversation our mutual love and admiration for the Jack White was revealed (and KEXP of course). These two factors for me pretty much mean that you are okay to hang out with and at least know a little bit of your stuff. Not to say that i don't have a lot left to learn about music, as with anything i think it is an on going educational process of both the past and the present- but to me Jack White IS the future. Hands down i think he will do more to change music for our generation than any other musician out there right now. I love him that much. So to be able to bring news to you regarding BOTH of his bands brings me much happiness. So i hope you enjoy. It would seem that he has left little time to rest in between finishing up his most recent White Stripes album with Meg, 'Icky Thump' and has gone back to Blackbird Studio in Nashville. The Raconteurs first album, 'Broken Boy Soliders' recieved quite a following and also features Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler who already have composed twelve songs for the follow up album, yet to be named. "The band are hoping to finish the LP before their frontman hits the road with The White Stripes in the summer. White described the sound as "very different" from the band's 2006 debut 'Broken Boy Soldiers'. "We don't know if we're going to finish but we wanted to get everything down before we got busy," he told Billboard.com. "We have a lot bigger ideas about certain things, so we will see how far we get."
