Announcing @thewhitestripes Greatest Hits – the first-ever official anthology of recordings from Jack and Meg White – out 12/4 via #thirdmanrecords & @columbiarecords and available for pre-order on CD, double LP, & digital now. The only deluxe limited edition colored vinyl is also available as part of #ThirdManRecords Vault Package #46. To reveal one of the 26 songs on the tracklist today, the band has dug into the archives to share a never-before-seen live performance video of “Ball and Biscuit” from a 2003 show in Tokyo, up now on The White Stripes @youtube channel. We get that the idea of “Greatest Hits” may seem irrelevant in the era of streaming, but we also wholeheartedly believe that great bands deserve “Greatest Hits.” The White Stripes are a great band with great fans and it feels like a greatest hits compilation from them is not only appropriate but absolutely necessary. Pre-order/pre-save the album, order #TMRVault 46, and watch via link in bio. #thewhitestripes #twsgreatesthits
The duo, Jack and Meg White officially broke up in 2011, four years after releasing their final album (their 6th) ‘Icky Thump’.
Now, Jack’s Third Man Records have outlined “the first-ever official anthology of recordings from Jack and Meg White” and said to expect its release on December 4.
It’ll be a 26 song compilation, available on CD, double LP and streaming services. If you’re a part of Third Man’s Vault, Package #46 will have a limited edition red and white coloured vinyl. Subscribe here by October 31.
The band released a live version of ‘Ball And Biscuit’ on their Youtube page to mark the ‘Greatest Hits’ announcement.
This video is from their Tokyo, Japan performance on October 22, 2003.
A statement said, “We get that the idea of ‘Greatest Hits’ may seem irrelevant in the era of streaming, but we also wholeheartedly believe that great bands deserve a ‘Greatest Hits’. The White Stripes are a great band with great fans and it feels like a greatest hits compilation from them is not only appropriate but absolutely necessary.”
