Jack White is set to release a new White Stripes single.

The 41-year-old musician - who was formerly the lead singer of the White Stripes - has confirmed he will unveil his forthcoming double acoustic album called Jack White: Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016, which will feature 26 tracks, including a new song for his previous band on September 9.

White's forthcoming EP will combine music from his days with The Raconteurs as well as music from his solo albums.

Meanwhile White - who recently teamed up with Third Man Records - was the first person to have his tracks played in space after launching a ''space proof'' turntable, which was attached to a balloon and reached 94,000 feet before it popped.

Third Man Records announced the stunt on their website last month.

A statement read: ''On July 30th, in celebration of our 7th anniversary, Third Man Records will reveal our attempt to play the first phonographic record in space - a gold-plated 12'' master of Carl Sagan's 'A Glorious Dawn' (a moving arrangement of Sagan's sagacious words culled from his magnificent Cosmos series, previously pressed and distributed as a 7'' in their first year of operation, 2009). This record marks our 3 MILLIONTH RECORD PRESSED!''
