Jack White Says That He Is Obsessed WIth Being Hard On Himself
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.21.2012



In an interview with The Sun, Jack White revealed that he needs to be hard on himself so he can feel proud of what he does.

On turning song ideas into a solo album: "I had to figure out ways to stop it becoming the easy way out. I have an obsession with being hard on myself because I really need to feel proud of what I do. If I look back and see that I got the best engineers, that someone mixed the record for me, that it was just a bunch of people playing the parts, I couldn't live with throwing my name on top of it. But now if someone says, ‘I really love that song, Jack', I can enjoy the compliment because I know the conditions under which it was made."

On where the songs originated: "I found myself in a process where I didn't really know what these songs were. They could have been anything. ‘Is this a Raconteurs song? Or maybe I'll bring this to The Dead Weather. Or maybe I'll just put out a 45 (vinyl single) on Third Man (his record label)'."

On including several Nashville musicians on Blunderbuss: "A couple of years ago, I would have imagined playing most of the instruments myself but it was never the case working on these songs. I'd try to shake things up by saying, ‘What if we only have female musicians today?' This is by far the most people I've had play on one album, probably 20 altogether."
