Jack White has announced plans to release a new The White Stripes live DVD.

His label Third Man Records will release 'Under New Zealand Lights', as part of the 12th installment of the Vault subscription series.

The film culls footage from two early New Zealand performances in November 2000 at the King's Arms in Auckland, during the band's first international tour, as well as a October 2003 performance for students at the Freeman's Bay Primary School.

A seven-inch release with unearthed tracks, 'Open Your Eyes' and 'You Make a Fool Out of Me", from The Raconteurs' 'Consolers Of The Lonely' sessions will also be released. White is also due to reissue two early singles by The White Stripes for Record Store Day on April 21.

He previously said he "really, really misses" being in his former band. But speaking to NME last month, he also explained that there was "absolutely no chance" he would ever reform The White Stripes, adding that he would only consider it if he "went bankrupt".

Jack White is due to play his debut UK solo gigs in June, starting with a date at London's O2 Academy Brixton on June 21. A gig at the capital's HMV Hammersmith Apollo is scheduled for the following night (22), with a slot at Radio 1's Hackney Weekend (23-24) also pencilled in.
