The White Stripes Seven Nation Army on 7" Vinyl
Remember Vault Package #19 with those 4 coveted clear vinyl White Stripes 7" singles from the Elephant era? Surprise, the black vinyl versions are now available! The four singles ("Seven Nation Army," "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself," "The Hardest Button to Button," and "There's No Home For You Here") feature badass non-album b-sides, 3 of which are covers of songs from some of Detroit's turn-of-the-millennium best and brightest (Brendan Benson, Jason Falkner, Dan Miller (Blanche), Soledad Brothers), and one of which is a live White Stripes medley of "I Fought Piranhas" and "Let's Build a Home," recorded at New York's legendary Electric Lady Studios.
Most of these tracks have been remastered from the original analog sources, and the artwork on all the singles has been improved upon by the Third Man Creative Hive. "There's No Home For You Here," which was originally coupled with a generic company sleeve, now has stunning new artwork. It looks electrifying! On top of looking good, these sleeves are as soft as a baby's bottom, printed with an aqueous coating, so they feel like a cross between rubber and lambskin. It's nice.
Originally issued in March 2003, the Grammy-winning, signature No. 1 single "Seven Nation Army" was the first released off of The White Stripes' acclaimed fourth album b/w a cover of Brendan Benson and Jason Falkner's "Good to Me" culled from the former's 2002 album Lapalco. "Seven Nation Army" has also become an unofficial anthem at many European football stadiums to which White replied, "I love that most people who are chanting it have no idea where it came from. That's folk music."
