'Live at the Masonic Temple' will be the 47th Vault package from Third Man Records.
The White Stripes frontman Jack White has announced the release of Jack White: Live at the Masonic Temple - the 47th installment in Third Man’s Vault subscription series.
Alongside the announcement, White previews the album with a live version of his song 'Missing Pieces', taken from his 2012 solo debut Blunderbluss.
The 38-song set clocks in at just over three hours, kickstarting with beloved White Stripes hits and includes covers like Beck’s 'Devil’s Haircut,' Led Zeppelin’s 'Lemon Song,' and more.
His Dead Weather bandmates Allison Mosshart and Dean Fertita also join him onstage for 'I Cut Like a Buffalo.'
The package comprises a recording of his July 30th, 2014 show at Detroit’s Masonic Temple on four coloured LPs, as well as a 7" featuring a recording of his 2020 performance on Saturday Night Live. The musician performed a medley of 'Don’t Hurt Yourself,' 'Ball and Biscuit,' and 'Jesus Is Coming Soon' on the iconic US comedy show. He concluded the evening with 'Lazaretto,' paying tribute to Eddie Van Halen by playing the song on a guitar designed by the late legend.
The collection consists of four LPs with White’s signature solo colours — blue, back, and white. It’s packaged in a slipcase cover with photo inner sleeves, with rare photos from the show shot by David Swanson.
White’s mother was once an usher at the Masonic Temple, and he saved the building from foreclosure in 2013, meaning his history with the venue stretches back decades.
The package is currently only available via Vault subscription, with signups available until midnight on January 31st.
Live at the Masonic Temple follows Vault Package #46, The White Stripes Greatest Hits. The band’s first-ever anthology was also released as a standalone album last month.
White also released a 20th anniversary edition of the White Stripes’ De Stijl in February of last year as part of the Vault series.
In August, White and Third Man auctioned off instruments, gear, and other memorabilia from their archival collections to benefit the John Peel Centre, Gideon’s Army, and the Detroit Phoenix Center.
