Jack White is sharing a previously unreleased White Stripes song called "City Lights."

The song was originally written for the band's 2005 album Get Behind Me Satan. But it was forgotten until White revisited the album for a 2015 Record Store Day vinyl reissue.

"City Lights" appears on the new Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016, a collection of alternate versions and previously unreleased songs from The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and White's solo work. It's due out Sept. 9 via Third Man and Columbia Records.
