Thie Saturday, June 20th, the White Stripes will celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their seminal second record De Stijl. To commemorate the occasion, Third Man Records is releasing a vault package.

The De Stijl package will include a hardcover case, an archival booklet comprised of previously unseen photos, flyers and more, a white LP and a red LP brimming with previously unreleased recordings and covers, and a DVD containing two performances from the era.

The performances set to feature in the package have been kept secret, though Third Man has promised that “they are shows you have never seen before, taken directly from the original tapes deep within the [Third Man Records] archives, never previously shared, exciting and insightful as all get-out.”

The De Stijl collection will feature 25 unreleased tracks in addition the rereleased record, and a few AC/DC covers for good measure.

Ahead of the release of the package, Third Man Records have shared a rare live clip of the White Stripes performing a cover of Son House’s ‘Death Letter’ at Jay’s Upstairs in Missoula, Montana from June 15th, 2000.

Per the description on YouTube, the footage was taken extracted from the original tapes.
