It has only been two years since his last album, but if you are like me you are always on the look out for the next Jack White record.

Finally your wait is over. Third Man Records quarterly vinyl subscription, the The Third Man Vault, has just announced that their next package(the 20th vault package overall) will be the only variant that will be released of the forthcoming Jack White album Lazaretto.

Along with the very pretty split blue/white LP you will also get a blue 7″ of demos and a hardcover book of lyrics, photos and art from the album creating process. Also the book comes with a postcard which is, let’s face it, the real reason why you are buying this package.

You have until the end of the day on April 29th(CST) to get your order in for this outstanding looking package. If you are wondering if it’s worth the price just remember it will sell for quite a bit more on ebay this summer.

The Details

In celebration of the new album and their 20th Vault package, Third Man has unveiled their most unique Vault package yet.

The LP for Third Man Records' Vault package #20 will be the ONLY limited version of Lazaretto to be released. Pressed on split-color blue-and-white vinyl and coupled with exclusive album art, this alternate presentation of the album is both insightful and deserving. Also exclusive to the Vault is a fold-out poster accompanying the album, featuring a classic National Archives photo that serves as a recurrent image throughout the album art.

Unlike the lightning bolt and inverted lightning bolt pressings Third Man did for Jack White's Blunderbuss, this alternate art and colored vinyl will be the only time ANY variation on LAZARETTO will be made. Once subscriptions are closed and records are pressed... that's it. Don't sleep. Get in now or regret it later.

The 7-inch includes two early demos of songs that appear on LAZARETTO in their completed form. Both "Alone in My Home" and "Entitlement" are solo recordings by Jack White, done while he was in Mexico. Pressed on lustrous blue vinyl and housed in the standard felt-weave, die-cut Third Man Vault 7-inch sleeve, both tracks offer a unique glimpse into the creative process and evolution of a song from it's original germination to its final delivery.

The bonus item is a lavish 40-page hard bound companion piece book full of lyrics, exclusive musical notations, photos and art from LAZARETTO. This is the perfect accompaniment to the listening experience and insight into both the album creation method and some of the inspiration (visual and otherwise) behind it.

In addition to these items, Vault package #20 will also include a linen, letter-pressed postcard with the same eye-popping color separations as evidenced in classic chromatic postcards popular in the first half of the 20th century. Stamps not included

Price $60
