The White Stripes have announced details of a companion album to their 2000 LP ‘De Stijl’ to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
The new release will be available exclusively through the Third Man Records Vault subscription service.
Released exclusively on double vinyl, the new album will feature a number of Jack White‘s original acoustic boombox demos for the album, live recordings and B-sides from the ‘De Stijl’ era, along with covers of AC/DC, The Velvet Underground and more.
The first LP features previously unreleased covers of Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s ‘I Just Don’t Know What to Do With Myself’ and Thee Headcoats’ ‘You’re Right, I’m Wrong’, recorded in Melbourne, Australia in 2000.
The second disc, meanwhile, is a recording of the band’s 2001 New Year’s Eve hometown show at the Magic Stick in Detroit, which feature covers of AC/DC’s ‘Let There Be Rock’ and The Velvet Underground’s ‘After Hours’, the latter of which is sung by Meg White
Elsewhere in the new anniversary package is various unseen memorabilia including a booklet of photographs and hand-written lyrics.
