The Kills frontwoman and Jack White's partner-in-crime tells Spinner she normally loves the thrill of playing new songs to crowds.
"I wouldn't say we ever really say we get nervous about anything. I think you get a really good energy when you play new songs that people haven't heard, it's a real test to look out at an audience and see what's working and what's not working, to rely totally on the song itself without anyone having heard it I think is exciting.
"The only nervous thing is when people are filming it on their phones, and it sounds like s--- and then they post it on YouTube and it looks like s---, and they go 'the new record sounds like s---!'"
"People have a really funny tendency of judging things that don't exist really."
The Dead Weather, who play London Friday and Saturday night before embarking on European dates, have already been playing a host of new songs -- including 'I Can't Hear You,' 'Jawbreaker' and 'No Horse' -- alongside those from debut album 'Horehound.' And it won't be long before those songs make it on to record, either.
Inbetween work on the next Kills record in London and the US, Mosshart says "I'm going to go to Nashville and work on the Dead Weather record, so it's back and forth with the two records. And then Christmas! My family!"
White said on Friday (Oct. 30) that the band already had a pile of songs to work on for album number two, which is expected to be out early in 2010.
"It's been started. We had three days off we weren't expecting a couple of months ago so obviously we went right into the studio and wrote 15 songs. Right! Obviously don't take a break."
That will be mere months after 'Horehound.' Are they trying to set some kind of record? "We're not a band that sits around. Ever" Does Jack White even sleep, Spinner asks cheekily? "Not really no, I don't actually think he sleeps. I think he's made of magic. I've known him for a long time and I've still found nothing to prove otherwise."
