The White Stripes Announce Greatest Hits

The White Stripes have announced their first official Greatest Hits collection. It’s out December 4 via Third Man/Columbia. It features 26 of the band’s songs spanning their discography. Accompanying the announcement is a previously unreleased live video of the band performing “Ball and Biscuit”—the only song so far confirmed for the tracklist—live in Tokyo in 2003. Check it out, along with the album cover art, below.

In addition to the standard CD, double LP, and digital editions, a 3xLP edition with colored vinyl will be available as part of Third Man’s Vault Package subscription. The Vault version also features new artwork from the White Stripes’ collaborator Rob Jones, silk-screen prints, and White Stripes-themed magnetic poetry. More special versions, benefitting independent record stores, will be announced later, according to a press release. 

The announcements come with news that White and Third Man have signed a new agreement with Sony Music Entertainment covering distribution of most of his career recordings. There’s also a new White Stripes Instagram page.
