The video Yule Log is a Christmas tradition created by NYC TV station WPIX in 1966, which allowed New Yorkers who don't have fireplaces to enjoy a little traditional cheer (and give the channel's programmers a little R&R). Updating that holiday classic are The White Stripes who offer up their own Yule Log. The looping animated 90-minutes video (directed by Noah Sterling) features tracks from their brand new Greatest Hits compilation, as well as a handful of acoustic tracks, rare B-sides, and the duo's original Christmas song, "Candy Cane Children." There's a little more to watch than your average Yule Log, including scenes of a yeti getting warm by a fire, a vampire couple grinning as a city burns behind them, a young girl toasting a marshmallow with the help of a dragon's breath, and more. You can watch that, and check out the Yule Log tracklist, below.
The White Stripes also recently released an Live at the 40-Watt with proceeds going to Stacey Abrams' Fair Fight on Bandcamp (no longer available, sadly), as well as a 17-track compilation of b-sides to go along with Greatest Hits and shared remastered videos of two tracks they performed on SNL back in 2002.
