New versions of some of The White Stripes’ best known songs are to be heard for the first time at an exhibition in the UK later this month.

The music will soundtrack ‘Aluminium’, a special collection which will see rock artist Rob Jones present his work for the first time in the UK.

Jones is one of the US’s leading poster designers, having worked with The White Stripes, The Strokes, and The Killers.

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 is also the designer 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’, as well as the band’s website.

The exhibition runs from July 29-September 23 at The Richard Goodall Gallery in Thomas Street, Manchester.
