The White Stripes Reveal ‘Elephant’ Mono Mix For 20th Anniversary

The White Stripes are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their 2003 album Elephant with a new mono mix of the album and previously unreleased material.

Elephant XX is the latest release from Jack White’s Third Man Records’ Vault Subscription service. The album featured an all-new mono mix from White and Bill Skibbe, which were pulled from the original multitrack tapes. These mixes contain previously unheard elements, such as a lost lyric from “Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine?”, an extra four bars at the end of “Seven Nation Army” and studio banter. The two-LP set will be pressed on opaque white and opaque red vinyl.

The release also includes a seven-inch featuring White’s original solo demos of “Hypnotize” and an early version of “You’ve got Her in Your Pocket.” Additionally, the set comes with a DVD with a multi-camera Japanese live performance from 2003, a previously unseen interview with Jack and Meg White, and more. Tying it all together is a 28-page booklet featuring previously unreleased photos from the Elephant cover shoot, backstage photos, handwritten lyrics, and more.

Check out a teaser for Elephant XX below.
