Considering Jack White's ever-expanding roster of bands -- the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, and the Dead Weather -- it's completely understandable that he'd crave some alone time.

What's surprising, though, is that he'd use that alone time for another musical project. Or perhaps it's not so surprising -- after all, he's not your dad's rockstar.

According to a recent article in Music Connection magazine, White "hopes to start working on a solo album at the end of 2009."

Aside from a few contributions to the Cold Mountain soundtrack, the upcoming release would be White's first-ever solo material. No further details on the project have been revealed, but one thing's for sure -- White is one very busy man.

Meanwhile, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has pulled a solo surprise of his own, having been recently confirmed for a special one-off solo performance at UK festival Latitude. And if you're hoping for any explanation about the performance from festival organizer Melvin Benn, keep hoping: "There is nothing I can add that Thom Yorke's confirmation doesn't already say," he said. Great, thanks for clearing that up!
