Jack White Rocks the Grammys, New Album Coming Soon?

Famed guitarist of the now defunct White Stripes, Jack White royally rocked the Grammys last Sunday night, performing 'Love Interruption' and 'Freedom at 21', both of which are off his Grammy-nominated first solo album, 'Blunderbuss'. Sadly for White, he did not win any of the 3 Grammys he was nominated for (Best Rock Song for 'Freedom at 21', Best Rock Album and Album of the Year for 'Blunderbuss'). In the 'Best Rock Song' and 'Best Rock Album' categories, he lost to fellow rockers, The Black Keys. But, according to White, he is already deep in the process of working on a second solo album. Not to mention, he already has nine Grammys under his belt, so it's not like he's hurting for more. It's always nice to get recognition, I suppose, but from what I can glean, it doesn't seem too important to him.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, White said, "I've got about 20 to 25 tracks I'm working on right now -- a lot of songs." He went on to say that, "It's a good time writing for me." The burning question is how will it sound? Is it going to be similar to 'Blunderbuss', which delved into many different genres? Or will he go back to his White Stripes roots and continue the garage rock / punk trend?White says, "It's definitely not one sound. It's all over the place. After going out on the road with two bands, that a gigantic new family, my influences have just spread out even more."

The even more pertinent question is when will we see this new album released? Playing it coy, he says that he's not sure if it'll come out this year or not. He's talked in the past at how his solo album came together in an odd way. He was just working on songs in between his many other projects and suddenly, he found out he was making a solo album.

It's tricky to tell if he'll release it by the end of the year because of how busy he is. He's a band member in 'The Dead Weather' and 'The Raconteurs', whilst running his own record label / recording studio, Third Man Records. That's on top of his touring in support of his 'Blunderbuss' album. That's quite a bit on anyone's plate, but White is notorious for liking to keep busy, so I'm hopeful that he will release this new solo album before the end of the year. Fingers crossed!
