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

November 6, 2007 10:53 AM ET

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.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
