Third Man Records have announced details of this year’s Record Store Day releases.
Among them are rarities from The White Stripes and Jack White.
The White Stripes‘ Peel Sessions will receive their first official release on two albums, one red and one vinyl. The band’s two sessions for John Peel took place in 2001. A standard black vinyl version of this release will be available later this year.
Jack White, meanwhile, will release a limited edition green vinyl 7″ of Stevie Wonder’s “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life“. This single includes White’s cover from his appearance on their show earlier this Spring with the Muppets house band, The Electric Mayhem, on the a-side, plus the special TV rendition, featuring the rest of the Muppets singing along, as the b-side.
Also for Record Store Day, B52 vocalist Kate Pierson releases “Venus” b/w “Radio in Bed” in the Blue Series 7″. Both tracks are produced by Jack White.
