This release had me drooling and running for the NME ordering page. This is really amazing. Ok, one side on each of these is an etching, and we've all heard Icky Thump but this packaging is amazing on red and white vinyl (of course). I think the issue is $4 and 8 with shipping.
I really love Icky Thump, it got me excited again for this new album.
I don't know where to get the white side...hopefully I will see it somewhere, or eventually on ebay.
Speaking of ebay, if you don't want to do all that hunting around, you can have it right now from this guy for about $20.
This is great news, especially for those here in the US. You can get your hands on the single for $4. From NME.com:
"NME is presenting a world exclusive with The White Stripes this week (June 6) which will allow you to get your hands on the duo's brand new material - first.
We're giving away 'Rag And Bone' , the first physical release from the band's forthcoming album 'Icky Thump' , absolutely free.
The track will come on a limited edition red vinyl seven-inch record, featuring the new song on one side and an etching by the band on the other. The record comes in special gatefold packaging.
To get your hands on this essential part of White Stripes history all you have to do is buy this week's issue of NME , which hits UK newsstands from June 6 .
If you're not based in Britain you don't have to go without. You can order you issue online now"
