City Lights 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 song by The White Stripes since 2008 and features on his record Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016.
Jack White and Third Man Records are pleased to share the genius surprise gift they received from their friend Michel Gondry. On his own and without anyone’s knowledge, the legendary filmmaker shot a video for ‘City Lights,’ which he sent them the other night.
Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 arranged in chronological order, collects 26 acoustic songs from throughout White’s wide-ranging musical career, spanning album tracks, B-sides, remixes, alternate versions, and previously unreleased tracks.
