'Avant-garde orchestral reworkings' surface online
New versions of some of The White Stripes’ best known songs can now be heard online.
As previously revealed on NME.COM, the reinterpretations have been soundtracking ‘Aluminium’, a special exhibition which has seen rock artist Rob Jones present his work for the first time in the UK.
The ‘Aluminium’ album is a series of avant-garde orchestral recordings of songs by The White Stripes. The record will be released in a limited edition of 3,333 on October 16.

Jones has also designed other items for The White Stripes, having produced over 45 posters, CD covers, lunchboxes, scarves, T-Shirts, the award-winning cover of the DVD ‘Live Under Blackpool Lights’, plus the band’s website.
His exhibition runs until September 23 at The Richard Goodall Gallery in Thomas Street, Manchester.
