Jack White's Third Man Records is offering "The White Stripes XX" as part of Third Man Vault's subscription service, according to Spin magazine.

Third Man announced the box set on social media, calling 1999 "a pivotal year for the White Stripes."

“From recording their first album through rumors of the band’s demise and embarking on their first-ever tour, the band worked extremely hard and was fortunate to see small but incremental gains from their efforts,” the statement said.

The anniversary reissue includes a newly mixed version of the LP, previously unreleased songs from the album’s recording sessions and an archival booklet, Spin reported.

The box set is available through the Vault through the end of October.
