When it comes to this vinyl thang, Jack White truly shines. The man knows his stuff and off the bat, it’s apparent that one of his motto’s is a keen sense of detail. I’ve picked up a few of his past joints on picture disc via Third Man Records in the past, but his latest announcement is some next level sh*t!
The iconic and ever busy rockstar recently announced that Third Man Records will release a very limited edition 7″ (45) box set of JAY Z’s 2013 LP Magna Carta Holy Grail.
1000 pressed copies may seem like a lot, but these will definitely fly off the shelves. Read an excerpt below and hit play on the promo video up top to see all the fine details laid out for our eyes.
Hopefully they’ll save some copies for Record Store Day.
Playing on the theme of redacted government documents and expanding it into a full, clothbound binder with the entirety of the Magna Carta…Holy Grail album spread across eight 7” 45rpm records, this piece conceived by Grammy-nominated designer Brian Roettinger is cryptographically breathtaking. It is limited to 1000 numbered sets (though not all will be released and sold on Friday) and released in conjunction with Roc Nation.
