A Handful of White Stripes 7″ Singles Are Getting Repressed
Four White Stripes vinyl singles are getting a very special re-release tomorrow (March 3). These singles, all from the band's Elephant album, are "Seven Nation Army," "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself," "The Hardest Button to Button," and "There's No Home for You Here."
All feature "badass non-album B-sides" according Jack White's Third Man Records. Those B-sides include covers of fellow Detroit rockers Brendan Benson, Jason Falkner, Dan Miller (Blanche) and the Soledad Brothers. The remaining flipside ("There's No Home for You Here") features a medley of "I Fought Piranhas" and "Let's Build a Home" that was recorded at New York's legendary Electric Lady Studios.
Most of the tracks have been remastered from the original analog sources. The artwork has been altered slightly, or as the label puts it, "improved upon by the Third Man Creative Hive." They have been printed with an "aqueous coating," giving them the feel that lies somewhere between rubber and lambskin. The singles are available individually or as a bundle pack at Third Man's official website.
