Keith Richards says that working with Jack White on new material with The Rolling Stones is a possibility and that “the door is wide open.” The Rolling Stones guitarist discussed his partnership with former White Stripes frontman:
"I enjoy working with Jack. We've done a couple of tracks. I don't know if [Jack] ever considered that it was actually, like, master cuts. But at the same time if Jack wanted to do it, I'd probably say, 'Yeah.'' I know Jack pretty well. He's a lovely player."
The Rolling Stones guitarist plans to talk about new material with the band as early as next month:
"We're going to talk about that in July and see. I mean, I'd love to get some tracks down and see what songs we've got. And that goes along with part of getting the band back together and getting things moving. So I'd love to cut some tracks, yeah."
Although he’s been staying creative, working on his various music projects, White has been adamant about saying The White Stripes will never get back together. He has been open to the press about putting the band that made him famous behind him since February 2011, but he told Nieuwsuur “no” with a little caveat:
"No. I don't think that could ever happen; it's all done. But the lord works in mysterious ways so there'll probably be something better come out of me one day. I hope so, I've got nothing better to do."
Jack White fans can be pretty sure they won’t be seeing any White Stripes material anytime soon, but they can check out his solo album debut Blunderbuss and maybe soon a production credit with The Rolling Stones is in the cards.
