The deluxe 10th anniversary vinyl reissue of The White Stripes’ Icky Thump is on its way and will feature unreleased demos and rarities.

As Pitchfork point out, the deluxe edition is out later this year as part of Third Man Records’ Vault subscription program, and comes with the original album fully remastered from original analog tapes, the first subscription title to be manufactured at the new Third Man pressing plant in Detroit.

The reissue will feature a “contained explosion” coloured vinyl, housed in a “glorious tip-on sleeve with slightly modified artwork and sealed with a Victorian update on the original red/white sticker that was begrudgingly slit open by fidgety record collectors overly concerned with ‘condition’.”

It also comes with a collection of all the B-sides recorded during the album sessions, previously unreleased demos, a Polaroid photo book, and a pin set.

Check out the full track list and details below and here, and check out some of that tasty “contained explosion” vinyl.
