Third Man Records, White's record label, tweeted a picture of the quartet, confirming "The Dead Weather working on new songs in the studio yesterday (and searching for bodies)." The band is recording in Nashville.
The album will be their third, following 2010's Sea of Cowards. The band has been on hiatus for a while as its members work on their other gigs, with vocalist Alison Mosshard busy with The Kills and Dean Fertita holding down the keys in Queens Of The Stone Age on their latest, …Like Clockwork. And bass player Jack Lawrence has been in the studio with White working on new material by The Raconteurs. White, of course, has been doing pretty well for himself with his debut solo album, Blunderbuss, which was critically acclaimed and Grammy-nominated.
