Jack White has revealed he is concentrating on 20 new tracks as attentions turn to a second solo album.
Speaking to BBC 6Music, White gave a brief update on a potential new record, explaining: “I’m writing a lot of songs for another record. I have over 20 tracks I’m working on right now.”
After the end of the White Stripes was announced in February 2011, ‘Blunderbuss‘ – White’s debut solo record – has proved to be a runaway success since its release last year, topping the album charts in both the UK and US.
He will compete with The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons, Fun and Frank Ocean for the coveted Album Of The Year gong at tomorrow’s (February 9th) 55th annual Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, and is also due to contest the International Male prize at the Brits later this month, with Gotye, Michael Buble, Frank Ocean and Bruce Springsteen also on the shortlist.
