Just because the White Stripes are officially defunct doesn’t mean they don’t still care about their fans. Following 2010’s Under Great White Northern Lights, a new DVD from the band is linearly titled Under Great New Zealand Lights and will premiere as the 12th installment in the Vault subscription series offered by Jack White’s ever-creative Third Man Records.
The DVD will feature footage of two of the band’s relatively early New Zealand gigs: one from Auckland’s King’s Arms in November 2000, the other from the same city’s Freeman’s Bay Primary School in October 2003. Additionally, the disc will be packaged alongside a seven-inch single of previously unreleased tracks “Open Your Eyes” b/w “You Make a Fool Out of Me,” both from the Raconteurs’ Consolers of the Lonely sessions.
