Jack White sat down with radio personality and former MTV VJ Kennedy on 98.7FM in Los Angeles recently, and said in the interview that the start of his solo album work came from RZA canceling a session. White says, "Before I started working on the album, I had zero songs." He continues, "This album started [when] RZA had to cancel a session one day, we were going to do a 45. So I had nothing to do, with these musicians sitting around. So [I said], 'I guess I'll try something with you guys.' And it turned into this. So then I started writing songs because a new vibe was happening. I'm very lucky that these moments happen. It could be the other way around, with me not knowing what to do for years."
