Jack White says rock 'n' roll lacks a "wildness" at the moment.

The White Stripes frontman - who releases new solo LP 'Boarding House Reach' next month - admits the genre goes through periods of having "attitude", but then it all fizzles out and becomes subdued.

In an interview with the KROQ program's 'The Kevin & Bean Show', the 42-year-old musician said: "Since rock and roll's inception, every 10, 12 years, there's a breath of fresh air and a new injection of some sort of what you could I guess call punk attitude or something like that.

"A wildness. Things get crazy and then they get crazy for a couple years, and then they kind of get subtle, and then you've gotta wait for the next wave to come through and get people really excited and screaming about it again."

Jack White says rock fans shouldn't be discouraged by the lack of true rock bands given top-billing on the festival circuit this summer. 10 - 12 years, there’s a breath of fresh air and a new injection of some sort of what you could I guess call 'punk attitude' or something like that, a wildness ," White says.

However, the 'Seven Nation Army' hitmaker and Third Man Records owner predicts there is some emerging talent about to "explode" onto the rock scene soon.

He said: "We see it at Third Man all the time, a lot of young rock 'n' roll acts, and I can tell in the last couple years it's definitely different than it was five years ago. So I can tell something's about to explode again."

Meanwhile, Jack recently warned fans that he is banning mobile phones from his forthcoming tour.

Jack previously admitted he's "wasting his time" performing to an audience too busy on their cells and drinking.

He moaned: "People can't clap anymore, because they've got a f**king texting thing in their f**king hand, and probably a drink, too!

"Some musicians don't care about this stuff, but I let the crowd tell me what to do.

"There's no setlist. I'm not just saying the same things I said in Cleveland last night. If they can't give me that energy back? Maybe I'm wasting my time."

The 'Love Interruption' singer kicks off his tour of the US in April and brings the run to the UK, playing two nights at London's Eventim Apollo on June 27 and 28.

The fun. and Bleachers musician called it quits with Girls creator and star Lena in January (18) after five years together, and just days later, it was claimed Jack had already moved on to date Lorde, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor. He shut down the unfounded speculation in a rare Twitter post addressing his personal life, but it appears the 21-year-old singer is providing Jack with some emotional support, after he paid Lorde a visit while on tour in her native Auckland. They were recently photographed smiling and hugging as they took a stroll in the city, although a source tells People.com their antics were strictly platonic. "There's nothing going on between Ella and Jack," says the insider. "There's not any type of romantic situation. They're just friends - they really are just friends." Meanwhile, TheBlast.com reports Lorde's new boyfriend, a man only identified as Justin, had also tagged along for the outing. Jack and Lorde became close friends while writing and producing her 2017 album Melodrama together, but when speculation about the true nature of their relationship first surfaced online last month (Jan18), the 33-year-old took to Twitter to insist he was single. "normally i would never address rumors but i resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative gossip," he wrote. "those relationships are deeply important and sacred. with that said, im not seeing anyone (sic).
