whitestripes The White Stripes Christmas Gift

The holiday season is fast approaching, and this year The White Stripes won’t miss out on the festivities. Jack White’s label Third Man Records have announced a limited-edition White Stripes Merchandise Collection, complete with Christmas-themed 7″ and a whole host of audiophile goodies.

We’ve got the Last.fm Trends team to look at how the Whites have been doing among their digital listeners, and whether fans would prefer new material to a Christmas bundle…

White Stripes’ last album was Icky Thump in 2007 – the chart above shows the week of its release, with eight tracks from the same set. “Seven Nation Army,” their most popular track overall, peeks in at tenth place.

Fast-forward three years and listeners have levelled off, but the chart contains tracks from four out of six albums, with 2003’s breakout Elephant leading the way. With “Seven Nation Army” restored to the top and no particular bias towards newer material, it seems like fans will be happy with a White Stripes-branded record player – so long as they have the vinyl to play on it…
