Having unveiled the song for the first time ever during his March 3rd appearance on Saturday Night Live, Jack White's "Sixteen Saltines," featuring non-LP B-side "Love Is Blindness" (Jack's cover of the U2 classic), will be released on Tuesday, March 20th. You don't have to wait, pre-order your copy now.
Third Man Records is 3 years old! And how better to celebrate that fact than with two sets from Jack White! For all of you that couldn't be here last night to catch the show, the super talented Jo McCaughey chronicled the evening in photos.
So what’s new with the Rolling Record Store you ask?
Well, it’s hitting the road of course! The Rolling Record Store will be wheeling and dealing all over the USA this summer at festivals, record stores, national landmarks, concerts and lots more...
Here’s where we’ll be in the next couple of weeks with lots more stops to be added soon. Make sure you follow @ThirdManRRS on Twitter as it’s the best place for Rolling Record Store updates and shenanigans.
March 10th we’ll be at the Savannah Stopover in Savannah GA. A great festival with an awesome lineup including Nashville bands Pujol and The Turbo Fruits... More info on the Stopover here.
March 12th is Jack White’s show at WorkPlay Soundstage in Birmingham, AL. We’ll try to bring the Rolling Record Store to as many of Jack’s shows we can this year so stay tuned for more info on that coming up!
March 14-17 is SXSW and we will of course be there again. A full list of locations and info on exclusives for sale coming your way early next week!
Today we’re very proud to announce our very special 7” single by the one and only Tom Jones is now available in stores nationwide.
Produced by Jack White III at his Third Man Studio in Nashville, TN. Sir Tom laid down two searing tracks full of dangerous swagger, blues braggadocio and those heartfelt soulful vocal stylings that have knocked em dead for generations.
The past two years (since we started Third Man Records) we’ve tried to do something extraordinary for Austin TX’s South By Southwest festival. Year One we took over part of our favorite Austin restaurant, FRANK, and brought you Texas Sized vinyl (that’s 13” LPs and 8” 45s) and a one of a kind pop up shop. Year Two we introduced our Rolling Record Store with live performances from Jack White and Seasick Steve.
This year we thought we’d try and do something we’ve never done before at SXSW. A showcase. Yes, we resisted it the first two years, but this year the temptation was just TOO strong. So without any further ado, it is our extreme pleasure to announce The Third Man Records Texas Show Down at The Stage in Austin, TX on March 16th. Featuring your favorite Third Man acts, friends of the label, and bands we just frankly really like that we’d love you to check out.
Our friends over at Nasty Little Man and From The Basement helped us put this whole thing together, and for that we thank them.
The Rolling Record store will also be in Austin again this year; dealing out records, exclusive goods and some brand new SXSW-only Rolling Record Store merchandise. Check the Rolling Record Store twitter account for locations as we move around the city throughout the festival. It’s first appearance will be Wed the 14th.
