Jack White’s solo debut, Blunderbuss, just came out this week, but apparently the indie guitar star already has his eyes set on the follow-up. White spoke to BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe (via NME) about his stash of new tunes.
“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 yet,” he said.
White is promoting Blunderbuss with a big tour, which he said is allowing him to perform all sorts of different material.
“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,” he said, before clarifying that the tour has nothing to do with nostalgia. “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.”
