The White Stripes announce Elephant 20th anniversary reissues

The White Stripes will release a pair of reissues of their fourth album, “Elephant”, in sync with its 20th anniversary.

Originally introduced with the lead single, “Seven Nation Army”, the 2003 project was produced by Jack White and largely recorded over two weeks in April 2002 at London's analogue Toe Rag Studios.

“Elephant” delivered the Detroit, MI band their first US Top album when it reached No. 6 on the Billboard chart on its way to sales of more than 2 million copies in the region; the set went on to win Grammy Awards for Best Alternative Music Album, and Best Rock Song for "Seven Nation Army".

Due March 31, the “Elephant (Deluxe)” digital edition features remastered HD audio of the original studio album joined with the band's July 2, 2003 27-song set at Chicago's Aragon Ballroom from the record’s companion tour.

A limited edition 2LP version of the original "Elephant" album will also be released on Red Smoke (1st LP) & Clear with Red & Black Smoke (2nd LP) colored vinyl on April 21.

The duo of Jack and Meg White formed The White Stripes in Detroit, MI in 1997; they would go on to release six studio albums before disbanding in 2011.
