The White Stripes have pulled another gem out of its vaults as part of its ongoing archival release campaign.

The now defunct Detroit duo has released its full 20-minute performance for the British program "From The Basement," via both the White Stripes' and "From the Basement's" official YouTube channels. The set was filmed during November 2005 at Maida Vale Studios in London and broadcast as part of the series' pilot episode in 2007.

This marks the first time the White Stripes' entire performance has been released, including additional material from the session.

"It was beautifully filmed and the sound quality makes a performance on a regular TV show sound like a wax cylinder recording," Jack White says in a statement. "No host. Thank God."

Director Sophie Muller -- who's directed videos for White's bands the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather -- adds that, "Everything fell into place very quickly, and because of Meg and Jack's ease and natural chemistry with each other, I could just shoot what I saw. Whatever it was between them made it very simple, but it was so special and it ws an honor to be there. I just love this electrifying performance."

The "From The Basement" stream is also part of a continuing campaign to promote "The White Stripes Greatest Hits" album, which was released during December.
