Not happy to stop at its ‘great idea’ to translate Jay-Z’s ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ to vinyl, Jack White’s Nashville-based label/wax factory Third Man now has its sights on a wider re-release of The White Stripes’ iconic 2003 LP ‘ Elephant’.

On sale as a limited Record Store Day special earlier this year (on Record Store Day, in fact), the re-mastered ‘Elephant’ will be made available to all (this on all-black vinyl) on 27 Aug via the Third Man site.

Third Man write: “This album is dedicated to the death of the sweetheart and is still as poignant today as when it was originally released in 2003. We draw a firm line here… you can’t consider yourself a White Stripes fan without this record on your record shelf”.
