Jack White’s Third Man Records has announced its 2017 Record Store Day releases. On April 22, the label will put a new book, The Blue Series: The Story Behind the Color. Written by Ben Blackwell, it explores the history of White’s “Blue Series,” which includes releases from Insane Clown Posse, Beck, Stephen Colbert, Courtney Barnett, Dwight Yoakam, Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, Tom Jones, and more. The RSD limited edition also includes a 7” vinyl with unreleased Blue Series tracks by First Aid Kit and Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes.
In addition to the book, Third Man is reissuing Bob Seger System’s song “2+2=?” on a 7” yellow-colored vinyl; “Ivory” is on the b-side. There is also a new release from Lillie Mae, new merch, and the previously announced gold-colored vinyl 7” of White’s new single “Battle Cry.” Find more information here, and find previews of the book and records below.
