As if Jack White didn't have enough to be getting on with, what with The White Stripes, The Racontuers, his new band The Dead Weather and his Third Man record label, reports have now surface that White hopes to begin work on a solo album by the end of the year.

Apparently, White mentioned a solo album while speaking to Music Connection magazine, but the quote does not feature in the actual published interview, raising speculation that it may have been a passing comment with little substance behind it. One thing's for certain, White's always on the lookout for a new project.
