Third Man Records Announce 20th Anniversary Box Set for The White Stripes' Debut Album

Jack White’s label Third Man Records has announced that they will release a box set titled The White Stripes XX in honor of the 20-year anniversary of the garage-rock duo’s self-titled debut album.

The box set is available for Third Man Records Vault subscribers as part of the label’s quarterly service and includes previously unheard outtakes from the original The White Stripes recording sessions. According to a press release, the songs were “newly mixed by Jack White at his Third Man Studios in Nashville, Tenn.”

1999 was a pivotal year for the White Stripes. From recording their first album through rumors of the band’s demise and embarking on their first-ever tour, the band worked extremely hard and was fortunate to see small but incremental gains from their efforts. @thirdmanrecords is humbled to explore the depths of the band with a Vault package compliment to their self-titled album, THE WHITE STRIPES XX, including two LPs – The White Stripes “Self-Titled LP Outtakes” and “Live At the Ritz, Raleigh, NC, 09/26/99” featuring music from the 1999 debut – two additional DVD of live performances, and a booklet containing photos, flyers, lyrics and more. Subscribe now through October 31st at TMR storefronts or ThirdManRecords.com

Fans will also hear tracks from Jack and Meg White’s live performance at The Ritz in Raleigh, N.C., on Sept. 26, 1999.

A DVD depicting two live performances in their home state of Michigan will also be a part of the box set, along with a 24-page archival booklet of previously unreleased photos, lyrics, flyers, etc. Live renditions of their iconic Dolly Parton, Iggy Pop and Bob Dylan covers are also featured in the set.

Jack White previously released a similar reissue through Third Man Records’ Vault series for his past band, The Go, earlier this year.

The deadline to sign up for the subscription service in time to acquire The White Stripes XX is Oct. 31.
