Jack White‘s Third Man Records has announced the forthcoming release of a special box set honoring 20 years of The White Stripes‘ self-titled debut studio album.
The collection of recordings from the former rock band’s 1999 debut have been remixed by White at Nashville’s Third Man Studios. In addition to the 17 tracks included in the original album, THE WHITE STRIPES XX 20th-anniversary reissue will include previously unheard outtakes from the project’s original recording sessions, a live LP featuring the band’s performance at The Ritz in Raleigh, NC, a DVD featuring two performances in Michigan from that year, and a 24-page book filled with archival photos and other exclusive content.
Additionally, the Third Man Records has shared the previously unreleased outtake of the band covering Burt Bacharach’s “My Little Red Book” from those sessions as well.
A statement shared with the reissue announcement on Wednesday reads, “1999 was a pivotal year for the White Stripes. From recording their first album through rumors of the band’s demise and embarking on their first-ever tour, the band worked extremely hard and was fortunate to see small but incremental gains from their efforts.”
Fans have until October 31st at 12 a.m. CST to register for the chance to purchase the 20th-anniversary box set, which is part of the label’s Vault Package album series. Head here for more info.
