Jack White played a medley of songs from his newly-released set, “Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016”, on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday.

The singer’s first-ever solo acoustic performance on television saw him deliver a 2006 rarity, “Love Is The Truth", before launching into an unplugged take on The White Stripes' "You've Got Her in Your Pocket" from 2003’s “Elephant.”

Prior to his performance, White joined Fallon for an interview to discuss the package, where he revealed “Love Is The Truth” was written for a 2006 Coca-Cola commercial that aired just once before being pulled.

“Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016” features 26 acoustic tracks of alternate versions, mixes and previously unreleased recordings, along with original album versions, from all of his projects including The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and solo career.

The package is available as 2CD and 2LP sets and via digital download.

White’s last studio release was 2014’s “Lazaretto.” That album debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 with opening week sales of 138,000 copies.

Following the completion of the “Lazaretto” world tour in the spring of 2015, White announced plans to take an extended break from live performances.
