Jack White to Release Vinyl Version of "Lazaretto"
Thu, 22 May 2014 16:38:18
Jack White will release an "Ultra" vinyl edition of his new solo album, dubbed Lazaretto. As is the case with J. White, there will be tons of cool accompanying features.
There are two hidden tracks that will be pressed under the center label on both sides, and they'll play at 78 RPM on Side A and 45 RPM on Side B.
The opening track of Side B, "Just One Drink," was cut with two grooves, so, depending on where you drop the needle, it will play either the song's electric or acoustic intro before converging to meet the rest of the song.
No, that's not all!
There will also be a hologram of a spinning angel set in the dead wax area of Side A.
The special edition vinyl will also feature a completely different track sequence from the digital or CD version, as well as alternate mixes of certain cuts. Still with us? It's way cool and to be expected from White, who is an audio purist.
Lazaretto lands on June 10 via Third Man Records and Columbia Records.
