The White Stripes Finally Release 'Get Behind Me Satan' on Vinyl
Published Mar 03, 2015Given Jack White's status as the modern music world's vinyl guru, it's a little surprising that the White Stripes' 2005 album Get Behind Me Satan has never received a proper commercial vinyl release. That will finally change this Record Store Day (April 18), since the record will at last be issued on wax.
This release is timed to honour the 10th anniversary of the album. It will arrive on two 180-gram LPs; the first one is red and the second one is white. It comes with what an announcement describes as a "gatefold lenticular jacket," meaning it's one of those 3D images that appears to move depending on what angle you look at it. See what the moving image looks right here. The gatefold also has brand-new inner artwork.
This limited-edition pressing will be exclusive to stores participating in Record Store Day. A non-limited version with black vinyl and standard artwork will be released later this year.
Check out the tracklist below. You might notice that the running order for the vinyl is slightly different, since "As Ugly as I Seem" and "Little Ghost" are swapped in the tracklist. A teaser video for this vinyl release is embedded at the bottom of this page.
Get Behind Me Satan was the follow-up to the White Stripes' massively successful 2003 album Elephant. It's unique in the White Stripes' discography by featuring a restrained, primarily acoustic sound, with a couple of songs using marimba and venturing into a calypso direction. It includes the singles "Blue Orchid" and "My Doorbell."
Previously, the album has been pressed in an extremely limited run of vinyl promo copies, but these were never released commercially and are very difficult to find.
