Published Oct 07, 2011The White Stripes broke up earlier this year, but thanks to the frequent releases from Third Man Records, Jack White fans haven't had any time to miss their hero. Soon, followers of the garage rocker will have even more new material to dig into thanks to the latest package from Third Man's Vault subscription series.
If you sign up before October 31 (or are already a member), you will receive a package that includes a star-studded remix single. This seven-inch vinyl features Beck's reworking of the White Stripes' "The Hardest Button to Button," plus Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan's take on the Dead Weather's "Hang You from the Heavens."
The package also includes a live album from Jack White's project the Raconteurs. The band, which also features Brendan Benson, was dormant until recently. This Live at Third Man LP was recorded on September 14, and it marks the outfit's return after almost three years of silence. According to an announcement from the label, it "provides a blistering and bombastic document to the magnetic power of this band in the live arena." In addition to cuts from the group's two albums, it contains an interpolation of the Who's "I Can See for Miles."
Lastly, the package features a DVD that documents Third Man's 2010 Devil's Night party. It contains behind-the-scene clips plus live performance footage from the Black Belles and the Greenhornes. Oh, and there's also "sword-swallowing, fire-breathing and the fair amount of zombies and the undead." Jack sure knows how to throw a party.
