The band recorded their last record, Elephant, in 10 days and White completed Loretta Lynn ‘s Grammy-winning Van Lear Rose in 12 days. As usual, White used analogue equipment was used for to record the album.

So far the record doesn’t have a release date or a name, but the band want to have it out in time for the Glastonbury Festival. Although the line-up for the festival hasn’t been announced, Coldplay and The Killers are rumoured to be among those who will perform. Festival organizer Michael Eavis has confirmed appearances by the Stripes, Kylie and Brian Wilson.
