Jack White's new album is nearly complete.

"[It's] practically done, just [needs] some finishing touches," he said Monday during a keynote Q+A at the Making Vinyl conference in his hometown of Detroit. He added: "It's a bizarre one. I've just got to let it settle. I need to listen to it by myself. I haven't been able to listen to it by myself for awhile."

White's comments are his latest update on the record, which he has been working on for most of this year. Back in March, he said he had been writing new songs in a small Nashville apartment.

At the time, he said he wanted to "write like Michael Jackson would write—instead of writing parts on the instruments or humming melodies, you think of them. To do everything in my head and to do it in silence and use only one room."

In July, White's Third Man Records shared photos of the musician with his band, confirming he had been recording his new solo album, which is expected to arrive in the first half of 2018 but doesn't yet have a formal release date.

This past June marked three years since the release of White's Lazaretto, which was among Variance's 50 Best Albums of 2014
