Jack White’s own label Third Man Records is set to release a previously unheard mono 180gm LP version of the White Stripes’ 2007 album Icky Thump, to registered subscribers only.
The release, which comes in new customosied gatefold artwork, will be the first from The Vault, the Third Man Records subscription service, which will send out an LP, a 45 and a T-shirt every three months.
The first batch’s 45 will be of The Dead Weather covering Pentagram‘s “Forever My Queen” and “Outside” by the Downliner Sect’s.
It is believed that Jack White has several rarities in his archive, including more from the White Stripes, the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather.
Registration will take place for three weeks prior to each quarterly release, and only enough vinyl for subscribers will be pressed. The albums are not intended to ever reach shops. So fans should go to thirdmanrecords.com/vault, to sign up for Icky Thump. Registration ends on Tuesday July 21.
