Die letzte Tour mussten Meg und Jack White absagen, die Drummerin von The White Stripes laborierte an psychischen Problemen, die größere Touraktivitäten unmöglich machten. Geht es nach der zweiten Hälfte des Duos, Jack White, könnte die Zwangspause des rot-weißen Paares ruhig auch länger dauern, selbst eine völlige Beilegung sämtlicher Konzertreisen schließt Sänger und Gitarrist Jack nicht mehr aus. Der Los Angeles Times verriet White auf die Frage, ob ihre Pause noch von langer Dauer sei: "I don't know. It's a good question. I guess it's up to her (Meg)... She seems to be lively. She was really invigorating working together on this 'Conquest' record. I was wondering if she was interested, and she was completely - very, very involved."
Im Rahmen der letzten Kollaboration mit Beck, wir berichteten, seien auch andere Aspekte des Künstlerdaseins in den Fokus gerückt: "Maybe working at Beck's house was something we needed to do to remind ourselves that touring is only one component of what we do. Taking a break from shows isn't going to stop it. If it came to a point where Meg said, 'I don't want to be in this band anymore, it doesn't fulfill me in any way,' then it would be a different story. But she's not saying that."
Immerhin könne er sich aber ein tourfreies Leben nach Beatles-Muster ganz gut vorstellen: "Well, the Beatles did it. I'm joking, but if we didn't ever tour again it doesn't matter to me There are so many different aspects to being creative that it doesn't matter if one component is changed. Because it's been changing all the time since the band started. And if something isn't working for you and it's detrimental to you, then you have to figure out a new way to attack it, a new way to look at it. I think that's what Meg's doing We'll find our spots, we'll find our moments. We already talked about other songs we're working on."
