Jack White and Third Man Records will open a Third Man Records in London on September 25th, making this their first location outside the U.S. The new location will feature a two-level retail space, an intimate live music venue named “The Blue Basement,” and a European headquarters for the label. Other Third Man Records locations are in Nashville, TN and Detroit, MI.
In celebration of the opening, Third Man Records approached some of their favorite UK artists — Paul Weller, David Ruffin, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Cornershop, Gina Birch of The Raincoats and The Magic Roundabout — to record something brand new or contribute something previously unheard to the Third Man catalogue. These exclusive releases will be available to buy on black vinyl on September 25th from the Third Man Webstore (soon to be expanding to the UK/EU), at all three Third Man Records stores, and independent record shops everywhere, and on very limited edition yellow vinyl in the Third Man London store only.
