White Stripes Shoot Video, Record New Songs
Despite having scrapped their fall tour, the White Stripes have recently been back in the studio. According to the group’s Web site, the Stripes have “recorded three never-before-heard original songs (with a special collaboration) and one unique new version of a song” from this year’s “Icky Thump.”
In addition, the group has filmed “an exciting new video” for an as-yet-unnamed song. No other details about song titles or release dates have been confirmed.
The Stripes abruptly pulled off the road in mid-September, after it was revealed that drummer Meg White “is suffering from acute anxiety and is unable to travel at this time.”
Meanwhile, frontman Jack White cameos as Elvis Presley in the upcoming film “Walk Hard,” which hits U.S. theaters in December.
