White Stripes Prep ‘Get Behind Me Satan’ for First Vinyl Release
Tenth anniversary commemorative pressing arrives on Record Store Day next month
The White StripesÂ will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their 2005 LP,Â Get Behind Me Satan, with the first commercially available vinyl pressing of the album, which arrives on Record Store Day, April 18th, via Jack White’s Third Man Records.
Get Behind Me Satan will comeÂ as a double LP pressed on 180-gram vinyl, with one disc colored red, the other colored white. The packaging will also feature a new lenticular gatefold jacket ”” which transitions between the original cover featuring Jack and Meg White, and a recreation with two different models ”” and new artwork inspired byÂ the original promotional version of the album.
Jack White also stars in a new promo for the commemorative Get Behind Me Satan release, which teases the new artwork.
This limited pressing of Get Behind Me Satan will be available at Third Man’s Nashville store alongside other participating Record Store Day outlets. For those unable to scoop up a copy, the album will be released with standard artwork on black vinyl later this year.
White and Third Man began Get Behind Me Satan‘s 10th anniversary celebration earlier this year with the release of the label’s 23rd Vault package, which centered around Under Amazonian Lights, a double LP and DVD capturing the White Stripes’ June 1st, 2005 concert in Manaus, Brazil.
The package also included a 7-inch single with an early White solo effort, “Let You Down,” which featured lyrics later repurposed for SatanÂ cutÂ “The Nurse.” The B-side boasted a long-forgotten White Stripes instrumental outtake, “Ain’t No Sweeter Than Rita Blues,” recorded during the Satan sessions.
