Jack White was the featured guest on Thursday's edition of The
Jack joined the host to talk about his new
album, "Blunderbuss," and to perform his latest
single, "Freedom At 21."
Watch the hilarious interview and Jack's live performance from
the show below.
The garage-bluesman has hinted that there will be a swift follow
up to his debut solo album 'Blunderbuss', saying that he still has
12 songs that are as yet unfinished.
Speaking about recording his debut solo album, he told Radio 1's
Zane Lowe: "We had enough for an album at one point, but I just
kept going…I've got another 12 songs that I haven't finished
He added: "There's songs that White Stripes never really played
live, or Raconteurs never really got that into, or songs that I
brought to the table in a band - songs like 'Buffalo' - and now I
can elaborate on them".
Speaking of his new set-up with one all-male and one all-female
band and lack of set-list for live shows, White said: "The easy
thing to do would be to go and find four or five guys to play in
just like the record and stand behind me. I just didn't want to
bore myself to death and bore people with that jazz and it just to
just be some nostalgia thing"
He continued: "If we're going to play a Dead Weather track, a
Raconteurs track or a White Stripes song or whatever it is, it
needs to be alive in the moment. It has to be something new to
everybody on stage, it can't be some recreation of something from
years ago. I don't wanna waste my time doing that."
White played his first ever UK solo show this week (April 23),
headlining London's HMV Forum the day 'Blunderbuss' was released.
His debut solo effort looks set to score him a Number One album
this Sunday (April 29) and is on course to knock Adele off the top
of the charts, according to the Official Charts Company. He is also
on course to hit Number One of the Billboard 200 chart in the US
next Wednesday (May 2) as well.
