Jack White- Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016- September 9th 2016

I've always been a fan of Jack White so I'm pretty excited about this even if it isn't new material.



JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS 1998 – 2016 OUT SEPTEMBER 9TH
Posted by Third Man on 10 August 2016

CAREER-SPANNING 26 TRACK ACOUSTIC SONGWRITING COLLECTION TO BE RELEASED AS DOUBLE LP & DOUBLE CD FEATURING PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED WHITE STRIPES SONG “CITY LIGHTS" – LISTEN NOW

AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER PHYSICALLY & DIGITALLY TODAY + DIGITAL PRE-ORDERS RECEIVE INSTANT DOWNLOAD OF “CITY LIGHTS” BEGINNING FRIDAY, AUGUST 12TH

Jack White has announced the release of JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS 1998-2016 (Third Man/Columbia/XL Recordings). The 26-track double-LP and double-CD will be released physically and digitally worldwide on September 9th. Featuring alternate versions, mixes and previously unreleased recordings from The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and solo material all completely remastered, this is the essential Jack White songwriting collection. Find out more and preview the record below...

JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS 1998-2016 is available for pre-order physically and digitally now. All digital pre-orders will receive an instant grat download of the spellbinding previously unreleased White Stripes track “City Lights” starting Friday, August 12th.

“City Lights” – which premiered today at jackwhiteiii.com – was written for The White Stripes’ GET BEHIND ME SATAN but then forgotten until White revisited the 2005 album for Third Man’s Record Store Day 2015 vinyl reissue and finished the recording in 2016. The track is the first new, worldwide commercially released White Stripes song since 2008. Listen below...

“This, like (Son House’s) ‘Grinnin’ In Your Face,’ is mirror-music,” writes renowned music journalist Greil Marcus of “City Lights” in the album’s exclusive liner notes, “the singer talking to himself, trying to tell himself the truth, which he’s going to need if he’s going to step out of his door, walk into the world, and fool himself, for just a second, that he’s ready to take it on. As you listen, it’s no surprise at all that it took most of White’s music-making life to bring the song home.”

JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS 1998-2016 collects 26 acoustic songs from throughout White’s wide-ranging musical career, spanning album tracks, B-sides, remixes, alternate versions, and previously unreleased tracks. The album, arranged in chronological order, includes acoustic songs made famous by The White Stripes, beginning with “Sugar Never Tasted So Good” (originally found on The White Stripes’ second-ever 7-inch single) and then lighting upon favorites like “Apple Blossom” and “I’m Bound To Pack It Up” (remixed here from the original recordings on 2000’s DE STIJL), “Hotel Yorba” and “We’re Going To Be Friends” (from 2001’s WHITE BLOOD CELLS), “You’ve Got Her In Your Pocket” and “Well It’s True That We Love One Another” (from 2003’s GRAMMY® Award-winning ELEPHANT), “Forever For Her (Is Over For Me),” “White Moon” and “As Ugly As I Seem” (from 2005’s GET BEHIND ME SATAN) “Effect & Cause” (from 2007’s ICKY THUMP), and the Beck-produced “Honey, We Can’t Afford To Look This Cheap,” first found on the B-side to The White Stripes’ final single, 2007’s “Conquest.”

Also featured are “Never Far Away” (recorded for 2003’s COLD MOUNTAIN: MUSIC FROM THE MIRAMAX MOTION PICTURE) and “Love Is The Truth” (written and recorded for Coca-Cola’s 2006 What Goes Around campaign) as well as the Bluegrass Version of “Top Yourself” and an acoustic mix of the epic murder ballad, “Carolina Drama,” both written by White and Brendan Benson for The Raconteurs’ GRAMMY® Award-winning 2008 album, CONSOLERS OF THE LONELY. White’s two chart-topping solo albums, 2012’s BLUNDERBUSS and 2014’s LAZARETTO, are represented by a remarkably diverse range of material including “Love Interruption,” “On And On And On,” “Blunderbuss,” “Entitlement,” “Want And Able,” and alternative mixes of “Hip (Eponymous) Poor Boy,” “Just One Drink,” “I Guess I Should Go To Sleep,” and B-side, “Machine Gun Silhouette.”

The 26 tracks featured on JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS 1998-2016 were remastered earlier this year by Andrew Mendelson at Nashville, TN’s Georgetown Masters. All songs were written and produced exclusively by Jack White, except “Never Far Away” (produced by T Bone Burnett), “Honey, We Can’t Afford To Look This Cheap” (produced by Beck), “Top Yourself (Bluegrass Version)” and “Carolina Drama” (written & produced by White & Brendan Benson), and “Machine Gun Silhouette” (written by White & Rob Jones).

I'm looking forward to this on vinyl, though I wish there would be more alternate takes or unreleased stuff.

No one mentioned it since it's release, so I figured I would bump.

Bought the vinyl today from Amazon, but get the MP3's too, and having listened to it, I really like the versions of the stuff on here! Anyone else's thoughts?

I've looked for it in stores but nowhere seems to be carrying it. Guess I'll have to get it from Amazon.

Retail stores don't seem to carry any new music releases unless they are fresh Pop acts. Even the Beatles' live release barely hit stores.

Got mine from Third Man a couple days before the official release date, sounds very good on vinyl.

Yep, the LP sounds great. Agree that too much of the album relies on previously released studio takes. City Lights is aces though, a minor classic.
