The White Stripes man, notorious for dipping his toes into many different projects, told NME that he feels he assumes this role when shifting between his various ventures.
He said, "On everything, I look at myself as a producer on any project, even in this band [the Dead Weather], and I still feel like a producer, even in the White Stripes as well ... or perhaps a director."
"They just all get presented in a different way, like working with Laura Marling or Loretta Lynn, White Stripes or Dead Weather, they just have different names."
"Some come out and get called Jack White and Alicia Keys or the Raconteurs, it doesn't really matter to me, it's just about making those things exist. They tell you what to do. It's about paying attention to what the music wants.
As previously reported by Spinner, White has recently teamed up with folk songstress Laura Marling to record a single for his Third Man record label, whilst his slightly more regular role in the Dead Weather has seen him tour Europe this year and also play a rainy slot at the Bonnaroo Festival too.
