White told the British publication songs are currently being written for the follow-up to their fourth CD, "Elephant," and the duo may go into the studio as early as next month to start recording.
"I don't think we're going to last 10 years, I don't think Stripes will last 20 years," White said. "At some point we'll stop, but we've no plans to now at all. I've got a lot of ideas for records for us coming up and the time off has been really re-inspiring."
The pair last were in the studio in the studio in London for two weeks, recording "Elephant."
White Stripes' next release will be their first DVD, "White Stripes Under Blackpool Lights."
