Jack White’s Third Man Records Releasing Gibby Haynes Single on X-Rays
Jack White has played on and produced a new single by Butthole Surfers frontman Gibby Haynes. The record will serve as the next installment of Third Man Records' ‘Blue Series,’ and in a move that justifies the label head and former White Stripes member's reputation for eccentric creativity, White plans to release a limited number of vinyl copies on old medical X-rays.
The single comprises three songs: the original tracks ‘Horse Named George’ and ‘You Don’t Have to Be Smart’ and a cover of hardcore punk band Adrenalin O.D.’s ‘Paul’s Not Home.’
Regular copies of the disc will go on sale on Feb. 14, and the special vinyl editions – otherwise known as FLEX-RAYs, according to a press release – will be available for purchase at this year’s SXSW via Third Man Records’ Rolling Record Store.
