The White Stripes haven’t been a band for nearly a decade, which means that a greatest-hits set is long overdue…and now finally its way.
Simply titled The White Stripes Greatest Hits, the collection will be released on Dec. 4 through Jack White’s Third Man Records and Columbia. The 26-song set will feature 26 previously released songs that span’s the group’s decade-and-a-half career.
A deluxe edition of the set (that includes a variant color vinyl) will be released as the latest Third Man Vault package and will include a bonus third vinyl of largely overlooked, previously scattered B-sides. That collection will also feature three Rob Jones silk-screen prints and a White Stripes-themed set of magnetic poetry.
From that set, the group has released a ripping live version of “Ball and Biscuit” that was recorded on Oct. 22, 2003 in Tokyo, which you can see below.
