Jack White‘s Third Man Records have announced plans to release some of White’s early material, via their Vault subscription service.

Some of the music will come from Two Star Tabernacle, White’s early punk band. Of the three Two Star Tabernacle tracks set to appear on Vault release number 27, two are earlier versions of what became White Stripes tracks.

The release will feature “Hotel Yorba” and “Now Mary” in earlier incarnations, as well as an unreleased track entitled “Itchy“, all recorded live in January 1998, three years before the release of White Blood Cells.


Other tracks on the subscription come from another early White band The Bricks, also featuring early versions of White Stripes songs and an unreleased track called “One And Two“. The Bricks only existed for about half a dozen shows, and produced early versions of “Candy Cane Children” and “You’ve Got Her in Your Pocket“.

The release will be a three gold LP collection, also featuring tracks by The Dead Weather and a handful of other Third Man Records acts. Subscription sign ups are available by clicking here until January 31.

The February 2016 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – featuring the 200 Greatest Albums Of All Time, 2016 Preview, New Order, Suede, John Cale, Michael Rother, Sun Ra, Barry Adamson, Savages, Ryley Walker, Tindersticks, Lucinda Williams, Peaches, The Long Ryders, Lera Lynn, Ronnie Lane and more.
