The White Stripes: Elephant reissue due this month

Jack White’s Third Man Records will mark the 10-year anniversary of The White Stripes’ breakthrough album, “Elephant”, with a reissue on August 27.

The band’s fourth album and major label debut, the “Elephant” reissue was mastered direct from the original, analog source from the 2002 recordings at Toe Rag Studios. The album includes two 180 gram black vinyl discs, a double-gatefold, printed inner sleeves and an MP3 download card.

“Elephant” featured the single “Seven Nation Army”, as well as “The Hardest Button To Button”, “I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself” and more.

The album debuted at number one in the United Kingdom and reached number six on the Billboard 200 in the US. The project won Grammys for Best Alternative Album and Best Rock Song ("Seven Nation Army").

“Elephant” was originally reissued earlier this year as a limited edition, 2-LP colored vinyl set as part of Record Store Day 2013, when White served as Record Store Day Ambassador.
