The White Stripes frontman Jack White is working on songs to be included on the follow-up to last year's smash album Elephant.

The singer has been enjoying a well-earned break, and has been making the most of his time by writing a batch of new material.

White says: "I can't tell you much. I have some songs written and me and Meg may record this summer, but not too much is definite.

"I must say though that the time off has made me very inspired to write, and I've been writing for sure. What else is a boy to do? I ask you?"

And White also promises an album of B-sides and rare, unreleased tracks.

He says: "There will definitely be a CD of all of The White Stripes' B-sides and what not coming out in the future. And possibly live Detroit things here and there. All things when the time is right I suppose."
