‘Elephant’ singles box-set being released

Preorders / January 3, 2014

As part of Third Man Records’ Vault series, a singles box-set for The White Stripes 2003 full length album, Elephant, will be released. The package will feature 7″ records for “Seven Nation Army,” “I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself,” “The Hardest Button To Button” and “There’s No Home For You Here.” Each will then contain a b-side, described below:

The b-sides consist of covers of some of Detroit’s most pre-eminent artists in 2003…

“Good to Me” written by Brendan Benson and Jason Falkner and originally released on Benson’s 2002 album Lapalco.

“Who’s to Say…” written by Dan Miller and released by his outfit Blanche in 2003 on their album If We Can’t Trust the Doctors…

“St. Ides of March” written by the Soledad Brothers and released on their self-titled album of 2000.

As well as a White Stripes live medley of “I Fought Piranhas / Let’s Build a Home” recorded at the legendary Electric Lady Studios in New York.

All tracks are being remastered from their original analog sources (or finest digital files available); the records are being packaged in “soft touch aqueous coating,” which feels like a cross between rubber and lambskin; and the colors will be clear vinyl with an “added vinyl highlight color insertion of either red, black or white.” For “There’s No Home,” all three colors will be added.

You can pick up this package by signing up for the Vault subscription. You have until January 31st to sign up. Also, each of these singles will be released individually, but on black vinyl and not in the box.
