Jack White has revealed that the next Vault subscription series package from his label, Third Man Records, will feature new music from his band The Dead Weather and a live album from his now-defunct duo The White Stripes. According to Consequence Of Sound, the package will include a new seven-inch vinyl single from the Dead Weather containing the songs "Buzzkill(er)" and "It's Just Too Bad." These two songs, along with those issued on a previous single earlier this year, will end up on a new Dead Weather album due out in 2015.
Meanwhile, the new White Stripes live album, Live Under The Lights of The Rising Sun, will arrive as a double vinyl set and will contain two complete performances recorded in Tokyo on the Stripes' first tour of Japan in October 2000.
Previews of both the Dead Weather and White Stripes releases are streaming below.
Subscribers will also receive a Third Man flag and are encouraged to submit photos with the flag in unique locations. The winning photo's owner will receive rare test pressings of the Dead Weather and White Stripes records.
White's second solo album, Lazaretto, recently earned the former White Stripes frontman his second Number One debut on the Billboard album chart, selling 138,000 copies in its first week of release last month.
White just completed a European festival run but will kick off a lengthy North American trek on July 19th in Louisville, Kentucky.
Make your ears happy here. These 30-second bits will have to do while we wait for these new albums! Oh Jack, you little tease...
