Third Man Records: Your Turntable is not dead!
Third Man Records
  • Live 7" Series

    Posted by Third Man on 17 January 2012

    Third Man is very excited to announce a new leg to our ongoing project of live shows and recordings for 2012, a live series of 7”s that we'll be launching with none other than Alabama Shakes from their performance here at Third Man Records for Soundland Festival 2011. Alabama Shakes, of course, are that hot new rock and roll soul group that EVERYONE is digging. Putting old school music back on the map and into our homes. It’s exciting. And this live 7” featuring “Be Mine” and “You Ain’t Alone” are two slabs of high tension deep southern soul cuts the likes of which used to drip down the walls in Muscle Shoals, only live. At Third Man Records. Like all of our live releases this analog recording was produced by Jack White III and mixed by Vance Powell. The dream team. To make it even more exciting, this will be Alabama Shakes first ever vinyl release and we couldn’t be more pleased to be the label behind it.

    The 7” and iTunes will be available this February... Stay tuned for more details and firm release date, but for now check out this awesome artwork for the Live 7” Series!

  • WHAT’S NEW PUSSY CAT?

    Posted by Third Man on 6 January 2012

    Third Man Records is proud to announce the most virile entry in the history of its Blue Series singles: The man, the legend himself Mr. Tom Jones laying his unmistakable voice over Howlin' Wolf's "Evil" and the Frankie Lane classic "Jezebel" (as covered over the years by the likes of Edith Piaf and Anna Calvi). Both tracks were produced by Jack White at Third Man studios and will be available on 7” and iTunes March 5th.

    Straight outta Detroit comes a new Blue Series 7” from high flying DIY electro genius and self-described weirdo, Duane The Teenage Weirdo. Pop music in Depression-era 2012 doesn’t come any more legit then in Duane’s capable hands. Both tracks, “Postcard From Hell” and “Bubblegum Encore” are the sound of Detroit pared down to a hard beat, feral vocals, synth stabs and real dance intent which all makes Duane our second favorite Detroiter to call himself a streetwalking cheetah. Blue Series 7” and iTunes available January 24th.

  • Vault package... #11

    Posted by Third Man on 6 January 2012

    2012 starts off with our third and FINAL singles compilation. 2011 was a massive year for us and it takes THREE LP's to fit all of our singles inside! We regrettably had to omit our Green Series singles from '11 because a 4 LP set was something we weren't ready to tackle just yet. We've loved the idea of these singles comps but are putting these baby's to rest, maybe one day they'll come out in some other form, but vault members will be the only ones with the vinyl albums!

    To spice it up, we’re offering these three LP's on Third Man’s standard three colors of vinyl…black, yellow and white. On top of that, we're also including a full fold-out poster depicting the covers of all the singles to compliment the same poster we've included the two previous years. They all fit together so prepare to dedicate some wall space. The matching of these three pieces will rival the magnificence of the Ghent Altarpiece and will hopefully be stolen less frequently.

    The 7" this quarter is a nice nugget dug up from the depths of our literal vault. Recorded during the tracking for their self-titled album in 1999, the White Stripes "Dead Leaves" and "Let's Build a Home" are versions markedly different from the ones that would eventually be recorded and released on White Blood Cells and De Stijl. This piece is truly for the fans and getting songs like these into their hands was the explicit reason the Vault was created.

    Our wild card item this quarter is solar-reactive, color-changing Third Man Records logo t-shirt. "What’s all this science you speak of?" says you, the intrigued customer? Let’s break it down to brass tacks: when you wear this shirt in the sunlight or underneath the lamps in your grow house, the color of the print switches from white to yellow, again reinforcing the THREE colors idea just as we did with the triple LP set above. Final...a reason for record collectors to venture outdoors!
