Jack White – who, fan or not, you have to admit is seriously one of the hardest working men in show business – is on the blogs for two tidbits today. The first is news that he produced a forthcoming single from everyone’s favorite Swedish psych band, Dungen. White recorded the song, titled “Oga Nasa Mum” (“Eye Nose Mouth” in English) at his studio in Nashville. It’s due out – in vinyl form only – January 24 on White’s very own Third Man label.
And there’s also (fairly vague) news that the White Stripes will get back to recording and releasing music. In an interview with Vanity Fair, White talked about returning to the studio now that he’s done pretty much everything else:
“We thought we’d do a lot of things that we’d never done: a full tour of Canada, a documentary, coffee-table book, live album, a boxed set. It was one long project that took almost three years. Now that we’ve gotten a lot of that out of our system, Meg and I can get back in the studio and start fresh.”
And don’t forget, he’s going to be singing ‘60s Italian movie music on an album produced by Danger Mouse. Seriously – Jack White never sleeps. [CoS, NME]
