Jack White's 'Lazaretto' ULTRA LP Is Bloody Awesome





Jack White's forthcoming studio record Lazaretto is reportedly packed tight with innovation and delightful chicanery. Vinyl copies of the record have been patented as 'ULTRA' and creators Third Man Records promise a myriad of hidden features never before utilized by pressers.

JUST WHAT THE RECORD WILL DO THAT OTHER RECORDS DO NOT DO

As listed by Third Man Records

- 180 gram vinyl

- 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels

- 1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record

- Side A plays from the outside in

- Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for "Just One Drink" depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song - The Dwarf note: How fucking cool

- Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record

- Both sides end with locked grooves

- Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format

- Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record

- Absolutely zero compression used during recording, mixing and mastering

- Different running order from the CD/digital version

- LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version

Jack also made a record in 3-odd hours a few weeks ago for Record Store Day. That was cool:
