Out of all of the artists , You would expect more of Jack White each time Record Store Day rolls around, especially now that he’s opened ip his own studios and record plant . Third Man Records is proud to announce the official opening of its state-of-the-art vinyl production facility in the heart of Detroit’s historic Cass Corridor neighborhood.. The past year has been spent investing creative energy and passion into crafting a meticulously designed boutique vinyl record production facility with a unique customer experience, providing visual evidence to visitors of vinyl’s beauty and importance. Third Man Pressing is an investment in Third Man Records‘ hometown, a neighborhood within a city both rich with musical history, creating a space that is as inspiring as it is prolific.

As the first label to operate a fleet of brand new, environmentally efficient pressing machinery within a purpose-built manufacturing infrastructure, Third Man Pressing minimizes water waste by using recycled water from the record curing process in the air conditioning system, thus creating the only fully climate-controlled pressing plant work environment in the world. Each pressing station is outfitted with a digital touch screen control for temperature, hydraulic compression, and extruder speed, equaling increased control for the highly trained staff as well as a superior product. The plant was engineered to not only be environmentally sustainable, but also community sensitive with its innovative noise reduction construction techniques.

So for this year’s RSD, kicking off on April 22nd, we’re looking forward to checking out the new book and record package he’s putting together, featuring an eclectic bunch of names ranging from Courtney Barnett to the Insane Clown Posse.

The book, titled The Blue Series: The Story Behind the Color, will explore the history of White’s ‘Blue Series’ releases with Courtney and ICP, as well as Beck, Tom Jones, and even Stephen Colbert. The RSD release will come with a 7″ featuring a couple of unreleased Blue Series recordings as well, from First Aid Kit and Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers.

There’ll also be a few other goodies on the way from Third Man Records, including a golden 7” of White’s new single ‘Battle Cry’, .
