Jack White to Release Two White Stripes Singles on Record Store Day
If you need a reason to head over to your local mom and pop record retailer on Record Store Day, which is scheduled for April 21, we’ve got one for you. Third Man Records, the label owned and operated by Jack White, will reissue two early-period singles by White’s much-loved former band, the White Stripes.
A special edition, red-and-black vinyl disc will include ‘Handsprings’ and ‘Red Death at 6:14,’ according to NME. So if you are a collector, a White Stripes fan or both, you will want to hit your indie record-selling establishment on the quick on April 21. It’s a national day meant to entice music fans into record stores to plunk down cash on some rare sonic treats. The White Stripes’ vinyl is certainly reason enough to drag you out of the house to browse and buy.
White is a busy man these days. He will release his solo debut ‘Blunderbuss’ on April 23, and just shared the new song ‘Sixteen Saltines,’ too. There is certainly no shortage of Jack White-related musical material in early 2012.
