Jack White will release a double-LP of a 2003 White Stripes show to celebrate 10 years since the release of "Elephant".

Ultimate Guitar

The White Stripes will released a live album "Nine Miles From the White City," two years after officially splitting up.

It will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their "Elephant" album, and will be released as a double vinyl on Jack White's Third Man Records imprint - but only to those who subscribe to its Vault subscription service for a total of $60 over three months.

A 7" record with two demo recordings from the "Elephant" sessions will accompany the release, including "I Want to Be the Boy to Warm Your Mother's Heart" which you can hear below.

The live recording was captured at the Chicago Aragon Ballroom in 2003, and features 26 songs over 76-minutes including "Seven Nation Army," "Hotel Yorba" and other hits from the peak of their popularity.

A bonus feature from this particular live set: the band made an impromptu performance of a song written on the spot which would later be called "Little Cream Soda" and appear on their 2007 album "Icky Thump."

    Jack White is the only reason I'm considering buying a record player.
    Wow, that's too awesome. I still have the ticket stub from that Aragon show.
