Elephant is the fourth studio album by the American alternative rock duo The White Stripes, originally released in April 2003 via V2 Records.

The White Stripes were founded in 1997 and consisted of husband and wife duo Jack White (songwriter, vocals, guitar, bass and keyboards) and Meg White (drums and occasional vocals). After releasing several singles and three albums within the Detroit music scene, The White Stripes rose to prominence in 2002, as part of the garage rock revival scene. Their successful and critically acclaimed albums White Blood Cells and Elephant drew attention from a large variety of media outlets in the United States and the United Kingdom, with the single "Seven Nation Army" and its now-iconic guitar line becoming a huge hit.

The duo were noted for their low-fidelity approach to writing and recording. Their music featured a melding of garage rock, blues influences and a raw simplicity of composition, arrangement, and performance. The pair were also noted for their fashion and design aesthetic - a simple color scheme of red and white, which was used on every album and single cover the band released.

Elephant was recorded over a period of two weeks during April 2002 in London's Toe Rag Studios, the only exceptions being "Well It's True That We Love One Another" which was recorded during November 2001 (also at Toe Rag Studios), and "I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself" which was recorded at the BBC's Maida Vale Studios. Jack White produced the album, and sticking to The White Stripes' low-fi approach, the album was recorded using an eight-track tape machine and pre-1960s recording gear.

On its release Elephant received widespread critical acclaim, with many critics hailing it as one of the defining events of the 2000s garage rock revival, Rolling Stone's David Fricke called the album "a glorious thing to hear" and "a work of pulverizing perfection".

The album debuted at number one in the United Kingdom, reached number six on the Billboard 200 in the US, and reached the No. 4 position on the Australian ARIA Album Chart. The album won Grammys for Best Alternative Album and Best Rock Song ("Seven Nation Army").

In 2003, the album was ranked number 390 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 albums of all time.

Elephant was certified Platinum in Australia, Europe, New Zealand, and the US, and 2x Platinum in Canada and the UK.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2022 reissue on 180 gram black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves, pressed in Europe via Third Man Records and Sony.
