The wait for Jack White’s third solo album is apparently getting shorter. White’s Third Man Records has posted Instagram photos and messages showing White at work in New York and Los Angeles, with a variety of musicians.

The New York photo was taken July 27, according to the posts, while the Los Angeles shot is from July 30. Both indicate White is “recording new music for his third solo album.”

White’s second solo album, Lazaretto, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 when it was released in June of 2014, and its title track won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance.

During the interim, White toured extensively, released an album with his band the Dead Weather, co-executive produced the PBS music series American Epic and appeared on albums by Beyonce and A Tribe Called Quest.

No details about the new album have been announced yet.
