Elsewhere, in September, White performed a surprise set on a London rooftop to celebrate the opening of a new Third Man Records store in the city. Before that, he played in the blue basement of the Soho shop.

White spoke about feeling “scared and confused” if there isn’t any “struggle” in his life in a The Times interview published around the time of the performance.

“If art is not being made in some way, I start worrying,” he explained. “I wish I could pinpoint why this is necessary for me. I can’t get away from it.”
