The Dead Weather already working on new album

In between his forthcoming collaborations with himself and Jay-Z (hopefully), Jack White will reportedly join his Dead Weather compadres to complete the band’s sophomore studio effort, aka the followup to this year’s Horehound. Yes, Jack and Co. have not only begun work on a new album, they’re already “halfway done”!

“…I’m going to go back to [White’s studio in] Nashville at some point. I think I’ll spend most of December in America and finish the second record. So there will be more,” the band’s frontwoman, Alison Mosshart, revealed in a recent interview with BBC Radio 1.

“They [the songs] sound great. I really like them,” she added. “We’ve been playing three or four of them onstage, so they keep changing all the time.”

“The boys are extremely quick but the four that we do have I’m sure are on YouTube. I’m sure they’re everywhere.”

And, that they are, at least two of them…

Mosshart did not give a timetable for the album’s release, but did note that it could be completed before the year is out. In the meantime, see The Dead Weather on tour…
