While Karen Elson and Jack White seem to have their hands full, White has found time for happier affairs, namely reissuing some of his previous work via his Third Man Records label.
The now-defunct White Stripes broke hearts (again) this past April when only a limited number of their 2003 album Elephant reissues were made available for Record Store Day (certainly not enough copies for every pair of eager hands to snag a copy). But later this month, you’ll be able to add the duo’s fourth album to your vinyl collection.
And, according to Third Man, if you consider yourself a true fan, you’d better fork out the cash: “This album is dedicated to the death of the sweetheart and is still as poignant today as when it was originally released in 2003. We draw a firm line here… you can’t consider yourself a White Stripes fan without this record on your record shelf.”
There you have it.
Classics like “Seven Nation Army” will come on two black, 180-gram records mastered directly from the original 2002 recordings at London’s Toe Rag Studios. The double LP goes on sale Aug. 27.
