The White Stripes Released a Live Album From a 1999 Show in Georgia

To benefit the voter participation advocacy group Fair Fight Action, The White Stripes have released a recording of a live show they played at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia on September 27, 1999.

All the revenue from the album will go to Fair Fight Action, the Stacey Abrams-founded voter participation advocacy group, and their ongoing work to protect the rights of eligible voters in the Georgia runoff elections. Releasing the 1999 Athens, Georgia gig on a digital album seems like the perfect way of showing support for that campaign.

  1. Sugar Never Tasted So Good
  2. Good To Me
  3. Suzy Lee
  4. Let’s Build A Home
  5. Jolene
  6. Astro
  7. Jimmy The Exploder
  8. Broken Bricks

The White Stripes With More “Newly-Old” Releases

Fans from all over the world can enjoy The White Stripes’ B-sides album that is available to listen to on major streaming services for the first time. Also, the duo appeared on Saturday Night Live in 2002, and their performance has been re-uploaded to YouTube in the form of two videos and the band performing their infamous “We’re Going to Be Friends” and “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground”.

Another album from The White Stripes has been released digitally – it’s their Great Hits 2020 compilation. Physical additions of the release may already be found in the US but February 12, 2021, is the date set for the album to arrive in the UK and outside of the states.

That being said, The White Stripes don’t seem to be reuniting as a band and creating new music. Re-releases may be the only thing the fans are getting, but it’s better than nothing.
