The Dead Weather will be releasing three versions of their single “Blue Blood Blues” this week including, most excitingly, on a brand new format entitled the Triple Decker Record™. The Triple Decker Record ™ designed by Jack White and assembled by United Record Pressing Nashville, TN is a unique 7” version of the single embedded inside a 12” version. Triple Decker Record ™ will be available in a limited edition of 300 copies, 100 of which will be on-sale at the Third Man Records store in Nashville, and the remainder available randomly through mail order and at select brick and mortar vinyl dealers worldwide.
For those not lucky enough to pick-up the Triple Decker Record™, an alternate 7” version of “Blue Blood Blues” with a double-sided cover will be available as a standalone purchase and comes with b-side “Jawbreaker (live). Tri Color 45s of the single will also be available. The 12” version will come with alternate B side “No Hassle Night”/”I Just Want to Make Love to You” (live).
The 7” and tri-color 45 are available today at Third Man Records and via the web store. The 12” and Triple Decker Record™ will be available in the same locations on Friday, September 17th.
Why, oh why did I not choose this week to go to Nashville?
