The White Stripes Lyrics Gets the Book Treatment

'The White Stripes Complete Lyrics' is out October 3, 2023

The White Stripes were not a long-lived band but gained enormous popularity, which lasts long after Jack and Meg White went their separate ways.

After, the reissues of their albums, now comes a hardback book of the duo’s collected lyrics. As a number of sources report, via Third Man Books. Jack White’s words to his catalog with drummer Meg White will be presented with photos, alternate versions, and rough drafts, along with essays from Hanif Abdurraqib, Caroline Randall Williams, and Ben Blackwell. The White Stripes Complete Lyrics is out October 3, 2023.

As Pitcfork adds, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the White Stripes’ 2003 album Elephant, which got a 2xLP vinyl reissue. Earlier in 2023, Jack White published a poem on Instagram in tribute to his former bandmate, writing “To be born in another time/any era but our own would’ve been fine.” The post arrived in the wake of a social media flare-up that disparaged Meg’s skills, with Questlove and Karen Elson joining the online crowd that rallied in her defense.
