The Dead Weather's debut Horehound isn't even a year old, but they're already plotting their next album. Earlier this week, the band told Rolling Stone they will hit the studio soon to work on their follow-up LP, which could be finished by the time they embark on their Australian tour in March.

"We'll probably be having a new album by that time, if we're lucky. We have a lot of songs cooking right now, we've been playing a few of them live and I'm sure by March the entire 20 or 25 songs will be onstage by then," Jack White told Rolling Stone. "We can't tell you that much about it except that it's gonna be really expansive, and I use that word loosely in a scientific sense, meaning that I'm just using it to distract you."

As if White didn't already have enough on his plate in 2009, he also served as producer during a recent recording session with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and the Queen of Rockabilly, Wanda Jackson. "It was just supposed to be a seven-inch [single], but we did a lot more songs, so maybe it will be something bigger," White told MTV News before last night's mtvU Woodie Awards. "There was a lot of good stuff. It's a wild record."

White, a Nashville resident these days, is no stranger to the country scene, having previously produced and won a Grammy for Loretta Lynn's 2004 album Van Lear Rose. "They had a super album, but he didn't have her do anything different, you know," Wanda Jackson told The Oklahoman. "She just did her little Loretta Lynn songs. But he told me he's gonna stretch me some, so we'll see."

    Definately looking forward to that: The first album was the best album I've heard this year.

    Jack White is awesome at pumping albums out! A couple albums per year just like Zeppelin, Hendrix and others. He's got a lot of talent as a musician.

    Jack White and Josh Homme are just shaping up to be our generations workaholic Rock gods, I don't know how they do it, but they're both just mega-winners Now if only they'd work together...

    I'm just not surprised any more. How he does it, I don't know, but Jack White somehow pumps out more songs a year than a professional commercial jingle maker high on speed.

    I love it! And I also love how Jackson talks about Lynn like she has no talent. Funny, how even fewer people have heard of "Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Inductee" Wanda Jackson....
