Music from The White Stripes has been reworked into avant-garde orchestral tracks for a forthcoming new album.

XL Recordings head Richard Russell and composer Jody Talbot have remixed 10 White Stripes songs for the limited edition disc Aluminium, which is set to be released next month.

Russell explains: "I've grown up on popular music, but in the last couple of years I've begun to appreciate classical music, and for some reason I've often thought of the White Stripes when I've heard it: the hypnotic, repetitious, enigmatic nature of it."

According to reports, choreographer Wayne McGregor will use some of the album in a forthcoming Royal Ballet performance in London.
