Third Man Records announced today that the White Stripes will exclusively release outtakes from the “Let’s Shake Hands” recording sessions in March 1998 to Platinum members of the Vault subscription service. This is the first time in the White Stripes’ celebrated career that they have released outtakes from any studio session. Alternate versions of “Let’s Shake Hands,” which was the duo’s first official 7″ release, along with its b-side “Look Me Over Closely,” will be part of the offering. Arguably, though, the most exciting part of the news blast (for fans of Jack White’s other bands) was that Vault members will also receive The Raconteurs: Live in London, a double LP, recorded in 2008, and a limited-edition Dead Weather screen-print poster designed by Rob Jones.

Registration for the next Vault Platinum membership service is open now until October 22nd. For more information, please visit the Vault’s website.

In other White Stripes news, the band’s documentary film Under the Great White Northern Lights, directed by Emmett Malloy, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival to widespread acclaim on September 18, 2009. Dates for the film’s wide release are as yet unavailable.
