The White Stripes

Jack says "no split"

Stripes singer going in the studio with Meg
27 Mar 06 - Jack White has quashed rumours that the White Stripes are splitting.

There have been regular suggestions that White would call an end to the band, and that seemed even more likely when he announced his new group The Raconteurs.

But White has confirmed he will be going into the studio with White Stripes bandmate Meg White when he gets the chance.

He told the Evening Echo: "I'm having a slight break from the White Stripes, but not too much. I've already got a lot of songs for our next record, so when I find two minutes to record it, I will."

The band have got a track record for recording albums quickly. Elephant and Get Behind Me Satan were put together in a fortnight.

The Raconteurs - featuring Brendan Benson - have been on the road in the UK and are set to tour for the rest of the year. Their debut album Broken Boy Soldiers is out on 15 May.
