In other news from Third Man Records, the label will be releasing a children’s book authored by Jack White. Titled We're Going to be Friends it takes its name from the much-adored White Stripes song and is based on the track’s lyrics.
It will illustrated by Elinor Blake (aka April March), a celebrated animator who used to work on Nickelodeon cartoon Ren and Stimpy alongside its creator John Kricfalusi. Speaking about White and Blake’s children’s book Kricfalusi said:
“I am a big fan of classic children’s book illustrations and an even bigger fan of Elinor Blake. I’m also a huge fan of pure Rock and Roll so naturally I’m a dedicated Jack White fan. Jack has written a perfect story and Elinor’s art is enchanting. It harkens back to 1940s Golden Books. Read it while listening to either Jack or Elinor sing the story. It’s a sonic/optic treat.”
The book is out November 7 and you can pre-order it here. Go here to order The White Stripes live album.
