The Dead Weather Announce Singles Series, New Album
The Dead Weather have revealed plans to release a series of singles from now through 2015. The supergroup -- Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs), Allison Mosshart (The Kills), Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs) -- recorded the new material in August of this year.
According to Consequence of Sound, the two-song singles will be collected for a full-length that will also feature album-only tracks. The first 7-inch single will be issued exclusively via Third Man’s Vault subscription series and include the songs ‘Open Up (That’s Enough)’ and ‘Rough Detective.’ The Vault package will also include a live LP recording and DVD of the Raconteurs’ September 2011 show at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. You can sign up for a subscription now through Oct. 31st via Third Man’s official website, where they're offering two option plans.
Previous Vault series releases have included exclusive vinyl sides from the likes of Beck and Willie Nelson, among others. The Dead Weather have released two studio albums (2009's 'Horehound' and 2010's 'Sea of Cowards') since forming in 2009, as well as the live 2009 record 'Live at Third Man Records West.'
