At last, Jay Z and Jack White are collaborating on a release, but it may not be what you hoped. (Sorry, “Ray Bans” remains locked in the vault.) On March 20th, White’s Third Man Records will release a special limited-edition vinyl version of Jay Z’s latest studio album, Magna Carter Holy Grail.
The deluxe set includes eight 7-inch vinyl records housed in a clothbound binder, with scratch-off pages that reveal lyrics and photos, playing off “the theme of redacted government documents.”
The set is limited to just 1,000 copies. Its release coincides with the expansion of Third Man Records’ Nashville headquarters.
Below, watch an unpacking trailer for the vinyl, plus video of White briefly covering Jay Z’s “99 Problems” during his performance at Forecastle Festival 2014.
