NME reports that during Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show yesterday, Jack White said he doesn't record as much now that he has children.
He said: "I used to record 12, 14 hours a day when I work on records, I don't do that any more since I've have kids, I try to work less hours so I can be with them in the evening or the morning. I try to work around the kids, I guess – they kind of control me.""
He also talked about performing most of his Glastonbury show without a set list this past weekend. He added: "If you're a big radio band and you have huge radio hits, it's like shooting fish in a barrel – you play the popular songs and the crowd chants along and everyone's having a great time. I guess I'm trying to put on a club show for 100 people in front of 100,000 people."
He also played several songs from his new album Lazaretto along with some early White Stripes songs. You can find the whole performance here at about 36 minutes in. It was recorded in London's Maida Vale Studios.
