Jack White: Third Man Pop-Up Shop Coming to SXSW, Dead Weather LP2 in April

February 1, 2010

It may be relatively quiet on the Third Man front for now (save for that teaser trailer, of course), but fear not, whenever Jack White and company hole up at their Nashville headquarters for a couple weeks, records will be made and new tunes will be on the way. In fact, White has filmed 6 music videos in the past week alone! At least that’s what he just told Australian radio station Triple J in a telephone interview from his Nashville home, among other exciting details…

“[The Dead Weather are] finishing recording the last couple of songs and then I’m going to start mixing in the next two weeks, so yeah it should be out in April,” White said, adding later that he is singing the lead vocal on the band’s first single, “Blue Blood Blues,” from the upcoming follow-up to last year’s Horehound.

So what does the new record sound like so far? “[T]he album is bluesier and heavier than we ever thought we could be,” White revealed.

But that’s not all, people. White also dropped a bit of news that is sure to excite all those lucky enough to be attending next month’s SXSW Fest in Austin, TX: a “Third Man Records and Novelties” pop-up shop will be coming to town for the music/film festival, following successful one-offs in New York City, London, and Los Angeles.

It’s a great little interview, and I left some interesting deets out, so be sure to have a listen here for more updates from the man in red, white, black, and (nowadays) yellow.
