The White Stripes announce new album details

The White Stripes have announced the title for their 6th studio effort- and it’s “their first album to include a title track, which curiously (and not ironically) has the same words in it’s [sic] name. That name being: Icky Thump. ” This comes from a message on the band’s site, telling us how long the album took to record (“It was the longest time the duo have ever spent in the studio, totaling almost three weeks”), and the release date (“as soon as corporately possible”). Also, they offer up these song titles:

“Catch Hell Blues”
“Little Cream Soda”
“Monkeys Have It Easy” (discarded)
“Rag and Bone”
“Clicky Bump” (retitled into something pleasant)
“Blue Orchid” (relocated to previous album)
“You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You’re Told)”
(via stereogum)

The album was recorded in Nashville, TN at Blackbird Studios
