Jack White has invited fans into his Nashville studio to record themselves on vinyl.

As part of his role as official ambassador to this year’s Record Store Day, White’s label Third Man Records will open a special booth to the public. Fans will be able to use the 1947 Voice-o-Graph, which is the only public vinyl record recording booth in the world. Participants will be able to record up to two minutes of audio which will then be cut to a six-inch phonograph disc disc. Scroll down to watch a video of White’s Raconteur bandmate Brandon Benson demonstrating it.

“Actively venturing to your local record shop is one of those honors and privileges in this life that we just shouldn’t take for granted,” said White in a statement on the Third Man website. “Certain beautiful experiences can only happen in the environment of a record store and I just thought that nothing could drive that point home more than a one-of-a-kind machine that lets you not only record your own vinyl record, but send it to anyone, anywhere in the world to share a song, poem, or private message with. I know those warm, scratchy tones send tingles up (and sometimes down) my spine. Even if you aren’t instrumentally inclined, you could hold up an iPhone playing a song and sing along with the music and combine the best of all worlds tangible, digital and romantic.”

Third Man are encouraging people to post their finished recording to a loved one – and will be selling custom-printed envelopes and postage stamps to make that happen. Fans will also be able to submit digitised versions of their recordings to Third Man, which will be streamed on their website.
