Does that mean we get to see him act as a southern gentleman again?

^^ He disconfirmed the rumors of that.


Very cool that he's writing a movie score, but I selfishly hope that it's not going to get in the way of tour dates or that next solo record that he's apparently already ready to start working on.

Well it's off-topic, but yes, specifically:
I should confess, quickly, that I am a reluctant fan of Jack White, which I like to think is the most flattering variety of fandom: I’m inclined to dislike him, yet I still can’t help admitting he usually does fine work. The reason I’m inclined to dislike him is that he has always struck me as an epic bore. A supremely talented bore — so talented that he spends most of his time being exciting — but a bore nonetheless, a bore at heart. It’s not his affection for the blues that’s the problem, nor his easy-target Luddite tendencies, nor the way his songs exist in a world where payphones cost a dime and have live operators. He is far too gleefully cartoonish and cloistered about such things for them to annoy, and besides, making art frequently benefits from that type of stubbornness — it aids focus. It’s not his songwriting, which has always been marvelously balanced; every time a White Stripes album began to seem like it was all just showy yowling, he’d sneak in some incredibly taut or sensitive songwriting, and every time that began to seem like dull, dusty songcraft, he’d throw in some ecstatic yowls. It’s not even the strange public love for his studied “weirdness.” (A recent Times Magazine profile has him fining employees at his Third Man Records compound for wearing the wrong colors — something which, when done by corporate management for Chipotle or Best Buy, is generally considered soul-crushingly anti-human, not artsy or cool.) It’s that he seems to have a fixed, narrow idea of what it means to be Jack White, and he sticks to it with a droning rigor that will send countless eyes rolling as soon as he releases a couple of duds — just as it has with great lovable bores before him, from Bob Dylan to Morrissey.
Ummm.... what?

Two threads on the topic have been merged. Ben, was there a third?

He mentioned it in one of the gazillion interviews that have come out in the past month-- Uncut or NY Times, perhaps. I've read so many at this point that they're all blending together. Said he had so many tracks left over from Blunderbuss that he wants to get both bands into the studio as soon as possible after the tour's over, while it's all still fresh.
