The White Stripes Give 'Elephant' Vinyl Reissue a Wide Release
Published Aug 14, 2013For this past Record Store Day, the White Stripes celebrated the 10th anniversary of their landmark 2003 album Elephant with a coloured vinyl reissue. If you missed your chance to snag a copy at the time, we're pleased to report that the album will now be getting a wider repressing.
This version will be available on August 27 through frontman Jack White's own Third Man Records. It's available to pre-order now.
Unlike the coloured Record Store Day edition, this pressing is on 180-gram black vinyl. The 14-song album is split across two discs and housed in a double-gatefold package with printed inner sleeves and an accompanying MP3 download. The tunes were mastered directly from the original analog source.
You can see some of the artwork over at Third Man's online store. Funnily enough, the package reads "complete recordings in chronological order," with footnote that adds "not necessarily complete or in chronological order."
Meanwhile, White is still embroiled in an ugly court battle with his ex-wife Karen Elson.
