Jack White to release White Stripes live album, Live Under The Lights Of The Rising Sun

A new live album from The White Stripes will be released through Jack White's Third Man subscription service later this year.

Live Under The Lights Of The Rising Sun was recorded during the duo's first visit to Japan in October 2000 and will feature 31 tracks including covers of "I'm Bored" by Iggy Pop and Screaming Lord Sutch's "Jack The Ripper" plus an early version of "Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground". The album will be the 21st release from The Vault subscription service offered by White's Nashville-based label.

The White Stripes Japan gigs marked their first ever trip out of America as a band and saw them supporting The's at Tokyo venues Jam and Urga over two consecutive nights.

The live LP will include both performances in full plus unseen photos taken during one of the shows and a die-cut, gatefold jacket. A snippet of "Hello Operator" from the album can be heard below.

As previously reported , subscribers to The Vault service will also receive a new single by White's band The Dead Weather as part of the next release. The seven-inch gold-coloured vinyl single 'Buzzkill(er)' will be backed with 'It's Just Too Bad'.

The songs follow the release of 'Rough Detective' and 'Open Up (That's Enough)' which were revealed at the start of the year. A new Dead Weather album is mooted for release in 2015. Their last LP, Sea Of Cowards, was released in 2010.
