White Blood Cells is the third studio album by American duo The White Stripes originally released on July 3, 2001. Recorded in Memphis, Tennessee and produced by frontman and guitarist Jack White, it was the band’s final record released independently on Sympathy for the Record Industry. Unique for a White Stripes album, as it contains no covers, no guest musicians, no blues and no guitar solos, this album would be most of the world’s introduction to the band.
In celebration of the albums 20th anniversary The Electric Recording Co. have collaborated with Third Man Records to produce our own unique edition.
