In the Studio
White Stripes Do the Icky

Here’s some good news from that pasty dude in the Raconteurs.
From a post dated 2/28 on the White Stripes website:
“Hello to all the Candy Cane Children in the land, the White Stripes have completed the recording and mixing of their sixth album. It is entitled: ‘Icky Thump’.”
The awfully clever post goes on to list a few song titles, including
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)
The duo apparently spent more time than ever in a Nashville studio (that being a whopping three weeks) and intimate that “your favorite White Stripes type songs may not be your favorite (pronounced favaright) White Stries type songs for long.”
The White Stripes play Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN on June 17.
