Raconteurs recording new album

Say what you want about Jack White’s rock star omnipresence, but you can’t deny he’s a hardworking man. Just as Icky Thump gets ready to drop, with all the touring and other promotional requirements that will create for White, he’s trying to cram in the creation of the next Raconteurs album. White, Brendan Benson, and the rhythm section of Greenhorners Patrick Keeler and Jack Lawrence are currently laying down tracks at Nashville’s Blackbird Studio. That’s where Jack and Meg recorded Icky. For further similarities, the engineer of Icky, Joe Chicarelli (who’s also worked with Beck and the Shins) is in the studio with the Raconteurs. The band hopes to have the album out early next year.
