WHITE STRIPES SINGLE FEATURED IN VAULT PACKAGE #24
Two White Stripes covers of classic Loretta Lynn songs are featured in Third Man Records' Vault Package #24. The package pays homage to Lynn with a deluxe LP reissue of Lynn's landmark Jack White-produced album Van Lear Rose. The accompanying 7” single of White Stripes covers, recorded in Detroit in 2000, includes Jack and Meg’s interpretation of “Rated X,” originally intended as the flipside to the Stripes’ cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.” Buried in the Vault since then, the electric version, complete with steel guitar accompaniment, is tantalizing and the kind of material that the Vault was specifically created to release. On the b-side is a live rendition of Lynn’s “Whispering Sea” recorded live at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, WA on August 6, 2005… just up the road from where Lynn wrote the song back in the early 1960s. The 7" will be pressed on white vinyl and housed in the inimitable Third Man Vault sleeve.
The package also includes an exclusive new DVD filmed in 2015 of both Loretta & Jack revisiting the time of Van Lear Rose, a frame-worthy foil-stamped postcard, stunning unused photos from Loretta's original album art session, and an enamel rose pin, in the deep apricot color of the florbunda rose named "Loretta Lynn Van Lear" in 2011.
The Deadline to sign up for Vault Package #24 is April 30th. Sign up for your subscription here.
