The White Stripes are set to release alternate versions of two classic tracks, which have not been available to fans before now.

An early version of the band's 2002 single 'Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground', which is simply titled 'Dead Leaves' and an early recording of 'Let's Build A Home' will both be released on a special 7' vinyl, simply titled 'Outtakes'.

The recordings will be sold as part of Jack White's Third Man Recordings' exclusive series of From The Vault releases, with a third singles collection also set to be released by the Nashville based label.

Jack White recently revealed that he has collaborated with Tom Jones for a one-off release on Third Man Records. The Welsh crooner has recorded a version of his 2002 track 'Jezebel' and a cover of Howlin' Wolf's 'Evil' for the release, which is set to be the latest in the label's 'Blue Series'.

The 'Blue Series' has previously featured artists such as Laura Marling and Insane Clown Posse, who put out their track 'Leck Mich Im Arsch' as an exclusive seven-inch and download last September.
