Jack White has said there is ‘absolutely no chance’ of The White Stripes reforming in the future after the duo decided to call it a day last year.
It was February 2011 when Jack and Meg told the world of their split after a period of inactivity following he release of the ‘Icky Thump‘ album four years earlier, outlining ‘a myriad of reasons’ for the move.
And Jack White has now told NME there will be no going back on the decision, as he cannot see any reason why they might want to return.
“Absolutely no chance,” he said. “I couldn’t see any reason to ever do that. I’m not the kind of person that would retire from baseball and come out of retirement the next year. I mean, if we went to all the trouble of telling people we’re done, we meant it, you know?”
“If we were forced to change our mind about that, I can only imagine being the reason, like if for some reason we went bankrupt or something or needed the cash, which would be a really sad thing, I would probably be issuing an apology along with the announcement of the show dates!”
A new White Stripes single is set for release in time for Record Store Day. The record will feature early tracks ‘Handsprings‘ and ‘Red Death at 6:14‘.Just Published:
