The White Stripes have more or less been off the radar since they released 2007’s Icky Thump and since canceling a series of live shows due to Meg White's anxiety, which may or may not have had something to with the fact that she DIDN’T have sex on video. Jack White, in the meantime, has put out a second Raconteurs album and two Dead Weather albums.
Simply stated: Jack put out and Meg didn’t.
But, seeing as though they did gather some attention this year with the Under Great White Northern Lights documentary, the renewal of pepperminty attention was cause enough to off load these super expensive “Merchandise Collections,” which are admittedly ambitious and kind of cool.
Check out the details at Third Man Records.
