"I thought it was going to be quieter, but it ended up being this really intense rock & roll record." Jack White says of the group's fourth album.
Jack said the album's title alludes to a balance between power and innocence. "Which is like me and Meg's contrast in the band," he says. "An elephant has the two of our personalities in one creature."
The tracklisting is as follows, with first single heavily touted to be ‘Seven Nation Army’.
1."Seven Nation Army"
3."There's No Home for You Here"
4."I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself"
5. "In the Cold, Cold Night"
6. "I Want To Be the Boy"

10. "Little Acorns"
