Jack White may not have taken home any trophies for his debut solo album during the Grammy Awards on Sunday, but the singer will hopefully get another shot in the near future as he’s already in the studio making the follow-up to Blunderbuss .

"I've got about 20 to 25 tracks I'm working on right now -- a lot of songs," White tells Rolling Stone .  "It's a good time for writing for me."

The ex- White Stripes singer adds that he has been recording the new tracks with his all-female backing band, the Peacocks , and his all-male backing band, the Buzzards .  “I just want to write and bring the Buzzards and Peacocks in and work on some things and work on the things with no intention of what it's going to be,” he reveals.  “No competition between the bands -– just keep writing and recording until I decide what it's going to be."

White notes that the upcoming album will feature a variety of different musical styles.  "It's definitely not one sound," he explains.  "It's all over the place.  After going out on the road with two bands, that a gigantic new family, my influences have just spread out even more."

A release date for the album has yet to be announced.
