The box set includes a live recording of the band on their first ever tour in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1999, and will be available on ‘fire engine red’ vinyl. A ‘pristine white’ vinyl will also contain unreleased tracks and unused takes from the band’s recording sessions. However, the box set will not contain the actual album.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album, The White Stripes have announced a new box set titled THE WHITE STRIPES XX.
The band’s debut album was a crucial stepping stone for duo. The year 1999 was also a big one all round, with the band going on tour for the first time in the midst of rumours that they were planning on disbanding.
The box set will also feature unseen DVD footage of The White Stripes playing in 1999 in Detroit and Hamtramck. In addition, it will come with a 24-page archival book.
The only way to get your hands on this box set is to subscribe to the auspicious Third Man Records’ Vault. To subscribe and to get your hands on the set, head to the record label website by October 31st.
