Third Man Records to release The White Stripes ‘Elephant’ singles collection on vinyl

Third Man Records has announced the release of all the singles from The White Stripes’ ‘Elephant’, together in a vinyl boxset.

The collection is the 19th release from the store's Vault series, and will include remastered and repackaged versions of ‘Seven Nation Army’, ‘The Hardest Button To Button’, ‘There’s No Home For You Here’ and ‘I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself’.

According to the official Third Man website, the vinyl sleeves from the collection, which costs $60, will be made using a process known as “soft touch aqueous coating”, which is said to give the sleeves a hybrid feel of “rubber and lambskin”. You can order the boxset here.

Last month, Third Man Records announced the next titles in their series of re-issues from the legendary Sun Records' back catalogue. The three new 7" releases come in the shape of bluesman DA Hunt's 1953 recording 'Lonesome Old Jail' b/w 'Greyhound Blues', Roy Orbison and the Teen Kings' 1956 release 'Rockhouse' b/w 'You're My Baby' and Jerry Lee Lewis' 'Great Balls of Fire' b/w 'You Win Again'.

The DA Hunt release is "the first legitimate release of Hunt's material on a 7" record". A rare copy of the single was sold on eBay in 2010 for $10,323.
