Nashville concerts May 2017
Rock superstar Jack White is penning a children’s book based off one of his hit songs.
Titled “We Are Going to be Friends,” the book will be based off the White Stripes’ 2001 platinum-selling song of the same name and is set to be released in November to coincide with the 20th anniversary of White’s former band.
This is the first book by the reclusive polymath and will be illustrated by Elinor Blake, who’s animated credits include “The Ren and Stimpy Show” and “Pee Wee’s Playhouse”.
“This November, children, adults, and you, too, can join Suzy Lee as she goes to school with her books and pens, looks for bugs, shows and tells, and finds a friend,” a synopsis reads.
The book can be pre-ordered from White’s Nashville based studio Third Man Records here. Digital orders include new recordings of the original White Stripes song. “We are Going To Be Friends” is slatted for release on November 7.
