The White Stripes To Reissue Self-Titled Debut Album For 20th Anniversary

Thursday, 08 August 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

The White Stripes' self-titled debut album is turning 20.

In celebration of the record's anniversary they are reissuing it. Titled 'The White Stripes XX', Jack White's Third Man Records will release an expanded edition of the LP as part of the label's Vault package subscription service. Fans have until October 31 to register for a chance to purchase the reissue. Head here for further details.

The 17-track collection was remastered by White at his Third Man Studios in Nashville and will also feature previously unheard studio outakes, a live album of the band's performance at the Ritz in Raleigh, North Carolina, a DVD of live performances in Michigan and 24-page book of rare and unseen photos.

As a teaser, the label have shared the previously unreleased cover of Burt Bacharach's Little Red Book, which you can listen to below. A statement reads:

"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."

Jack White, meanwhile, put out his third solo album, 'Boarding House Reach', in 2018. More recently, he reunited with the Raconteurs for 'Help Us Stranger', their first album in 11 years and third overall. The band are currently touring North America.
