It’s been two decades since The White Stripes released their self-titled debut LP. And to commemorate the 1999 album’s 20th anniversary, Jack White’s Third Man Records is releasing a special companion box set.

Titled The White Stripes XX, the bundle includes previously unreleased studio outtakes, a DVD of two Michigan shows in 1999 and a live LP of a concert in Raleigh, North Carolina. Joining the exclusive audio offering is a 24-page booklet filled with photos, flyers, lyrics and assorted archival material.

Third Man Records has also previewed the upcoming box set with the band’s cover of Burt Bacharach’s Little Red Book. The White Stripes XX is available via Third Man Records’ Vault subscription service. The deadline for sign-ups is 31 October.
