Keys Plans Odd Collaboration With White Stripes

R+B queen ALICIA KEYS has set up one of the oddest collaborations in music history by revealing she wants to work with the WHITE STRIPES.
The Fallin' singer insists she's keen to take her music in a different direction and would like her next album to include eclectic tracks with the White Stripes and Queens of The Stone Age.
Keys admits the White Stripes are one of her favourite bands: "They're very raw, very cut and dry. It's, like, drums and guitar. It's that simple, and I love that.
"I think that combining that style with mine, which already has a raw feel to it, and my voice, I just think we could do something really interesting that mixes rock and soul together, the blues and emotion, and it could be really touching."
And Keys claims the unlikely collaboration isn't as far-fetched as some might imagine: "We've had some conversations. When the time works out, and it definitely will, it will happen."
