White Stripes Hint At "Exciting New Video," Three Never-Before-Heard Songs, Special Collaboration

Even though the White Stripes cancelled their 2007 tour obligations due to Meg White's "acute anxiety," the Detroit duo aren't going into a prolonged hibernation. Yesterday, the band announced on their Web site and MySpace page that they have filmed an "exciting" new video (mind out of gutter, please), as well as three new, never-before-heard original songs (including one "special collaboration") and a re-recording of an Icky Thump track, which we know the band has an affinity for doing. As for any specifics — the release date, the special collaboration (though could this be it?), the reworked song, the new video premiere and what's it a video for — the Stripes are keeping a tight lid on the information for now.
