The White Stripes‘ fourth album ‘Elephant‘ is to be reissued next month as part of the annual Record Store Day celebrations.
Jack White has said he found it difficult to celebrate the high points of the White Stripes‘ career with drummer Meg White as she was ‘very uninterested’ in the band.
The Rolling Stones and the White Stripes are among the first acts to announce special releases for the inaugural ‘Back To Black Friday’ event which has been organised by the people behind the annual Record Store Day initiative.
Jack White‘s Third Man Records will release the White Stripes‘ first ever live appearance and full gig on coloured vinyl as part of the label’s ‘Vault’ subscription service.
A rare White Stripes single has commanded a fee of almost $13,000 after being auctioned this week.

Jack White has said there is ‘absolutely no chance’ of The White Stripes reforming in the future after the duo decided to call it a day last year.
Jack White previewed a selection of tracks from his forthcoming new album, as well as various White Stripes, Dead Weather and Raconteurs favourites, during a show in Nashville to celebrate the third birthday of his superb label Third Man Records.
The show will be the first action for the band, which consists of former White Stripes man Jack White, acclaimed US songwriter Brendan Benson, as well as Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, since the conclusion of promotional duties for second album ‘Consolers of the Lonely‘, released in March 2008.
