Featuring a previously unreleased cover of Burt Bacharach’s ‘Little Red Book’.
The White Stripes have announced the release of a 20th anniversary box set celebrating their debut album, THE WHITE STRIPES XX, via Jack White’s Third Man Records.
The wife and husband duo’s 1999 self-titled debut was followed by a U.S tour in the same year, from which a recording of a gig in Raleigh, North Carolina will be pressed onto ‘fire engine red’ vinyl.
Additionally, a white vinyl 12″ will feature unreleased tracks and unused takes from the recording sessions, mixed by Jack White at Third Man Studios in Nashville, as well as a previously unreleased cover of Burt Bacharach’s ‘Little Red Book’.
THE WHITE STRIPES XX is only available as part of Third Man’s Vault subscription service, and will also include a DVD of two gigs from that same 1999 tour.
