Jack White didn’t want credited on Tyler, The Creator album, here’s why
The rapper gave an interview on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe on Thursday to discuss his latest record.
He said White “played guitar” on the album but wasn’t listed in the credits.
“He didn't want to get credit, though, because he couldn't hear himself,” Tyler said.
It’s believed that White’s contribution is on the track “Are We Still Friends?” but it’s unconfirmed.
Then, he went on to praise Eilish.
"I like her (and) I just want her to just keep doing her damn thing," he said. "I want to work with her. I don't know what the fuck we would make. Even if it don't come out, if it's trash, I still just want to see."

More Jack White news
White recently issued a statement to clarify some comments he recently made joking about using heroin.
“Well, when Brendan (Benson) gave up alcohol, I started doing heroin, so that delayed things,” White said. “It’s funny, I’m a big believer that things happen that are supposed to happen, not in any sort of religious or mystical way, but in a ‘human nature’ kind of way.”
Many news outlets reported White’s statement as fact instead of a joke. White has responded on Instagram, calling out outlets for using his statement as “clickbait.”
He was specifically calling out SPIN at the beginning but expanded to other outlets.
“I’ve never done heroin or any other illegal drug in my life and anyone close to me could confirm this,” White said. “If you’d actually read the article in full, you could see that I was joking. But, I suppose spin never lets the facts get in the way of good clickbait.”
“And while we’re here, dear pitchfork, stereogum, noisey and the rest of the trash ‘music’ couch ‘journalism’ sites: though I realize that you work in the business of sound-bites and clickbait, and that you’re pissed third man records didn’t send you a free copy of the new raconteurs album because of how nasty you regularly are, here’s a couple other notes,” it continued.
He then went into discussing reports that he doesn’t have a cell phone.
“I don’t hate people who own cell phones, or never allow one near me, or hate ALL technology etc.,” he continued. “Stop painting with such a wide brush. Just because I don’t own a cell phone in an attempt to lead a healthy life doesn’t mean I hate all technology.”
“Also, back in my day in the 1800s, artists weren’t punished for taking the road less traveled, or for answering questions with unpopular responses,” White added. “Hell, we were even expected to rebel against the status quo if you can believe that.”
“I encourage people to lead their own healthly lives and find ways to engage in things that inspire one another rather than bring them down. If you love music and the arts, I think your organizations should start to earn to do the same thing, or at least pretend you love music rather than looking to please your advertisers with clicks.”
