They keep on rolling...
Third Man Records is humbled to be a part of such a stellar confluence of literature, art and music in handling the vinyl release of the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.
In an effort to present an object that integrates all the inter-connected components of this release, Third Man Records has gone the extra mile with their limited-edition version of the soundtrack in pioneering a never-before released method for vinyl records.
Both LPs in the set are blindingly reflective metallized discs. Disc one is platinum and disc two is gold. These are the first-ever commercially available records made using these precious metals via this process.
Not stopping there, the records come housed in a entirely unique laser-cut wooden LP jacket riveted to aluminum spines. All of these elements (gold, platinum, aluminum, wood and brass) showcase the Art Deco-meets-modern style, classic meets cutting edge, which is the essence of The Great Gatsby film and Third Man Records.
Mere words pale in comparison to the actual physical presence of this piece, so please do check out the video here to get the full experience of the release.
These unique hand made sets will retail for $250 and Pre-Sales will be available in a limited number through the Third Man website (US only) starting from 9am on Friday May 10th in order to coincide with the Great Gatsby cinema release. Also on Friday the 10th, the first 100 physical copies of the set will be available in the Third Man retail store in Nashville from 10am.
In addition to the limited edition, Third Man is also announcing the release date of June 11th for the standard edition double album. The soundtrack will be on 180 gram vinyl and housed in a Gold Foil stamped gatefold sleeve. Pre-sales for this standard edition of the soundtrack will also be available on the Third Man website on Friday May 10th.
I like the Love is Blindness cover.
Oh Jack White, what have you wrought with your catchy song that is now the anthem of stadiums and meatheads alike....
Long Island kids heading to Citi Field for EDC NY this weekend.

i wonder what jack would have said if someone came into the upholstery shop and showed him what he would eventually become, for better or worse?

WTF! It's no longer available on my phone either. What's the name of the video?
Idol snake, get out of that skin.
pollstar has a blurb about his divorce being finalized
3k/month child support, he gets them 150 days a year.
Says he makes $62k/month, which is $744k/year.
Strikes me as REALLY low for someone who sells that much 3rd Man stuff, owns all copyrights and tours at a fairly regularly at a high level. Sasquatch/Voodoo/OSL/ACL probably paid $750k each for him to play.
If I had to guess I would guess that $62k/month is his take home since he doesn't have a major label paying for all of the touring he does and for all of the manufacturing costs to make the shirts, records, etc.

Really bummed that I didn't make the deadline for the newest vault package. I love the idea of them releasing this deadweather album one 7" at a time.
