As The White Stripes Announce Their New Record Did CMJ Just Announce Their Return to Coachella?
A few interesting things happened today as the White Stripes announced that they have finished their new record Icky Thump (those things just seem to ease right out of Jack White's mind, dont they?).
The first was the Stripes, who should know better, announced their news on their website that is only accessible via Flash, meaning it's impossible to cut n paste the info and pop it into an email or a web post to help spread the news. Bad White Stripes! So not Web 2.0 of you! Anyways, we typed it up for you and it's waiting after the jump.
But the most interesting thing about the announcement was something that CMJ wrote today while they covered it.
Recorded in Nashville at Blackbird Studios, Icky Thump includes songs "Catch Hell Blues," "Little Cream Soda," "Rag and Bone," "You Don't Know What Love Is (Just Do As You're Told)," "I'm Slowly Turning Into You," and "Icky Thump." No release date set, but if you catch Jack and Meg at this year's Coachella, be sure to ask.
Now LAist might not be any Coachella experts, but we know that the White Stripes aren't on this year's Coachella lineup. They are playing at Bonnaroo with the Cops but we hadn't even heard rumors of the band heading back to Indio.Maybe they want to do a battle of the bands against The Black Keys?
