Initially announced in 2013, the reissue will now surface later this month in the form of a seven-inch box set. Third Man Records will release the collection on March 20.
As Pitchfork report, the set will consist of eight seven-inch vinyl records, each containing a single track from the album on each side. The singles will also come in “a clothbound binder, featuring scratchoff pages that reveal lyrics and photos”, supposedly playing on a “theme of redacted government documents”.
Watch a trailer for the release below.
Jack White was recently revealed as the mystery buyer behind the $300,000 sale of Elvis Presley’s first record.
The sale was initially reported to have gone to an unknown internet bidder, now known to be White. The former White Stripes man will now reissue the record on vinyl for Record Store Day on April 18.
Meanwhile, Jack White has spoken out about his ‘retro’ image, commenting: “I don’t like feeding off the past. I don’t live in a hopeless notion that amplifiers or records were better in the ’60s.”
