True to its name, the "Ultra" edition of Jack White's upcoming album Lazaretto comes fully loaded. White explains in a new Third Man Records video that they worked hard to fill the vinyl version of his second solo effort with as many one-of-a-kind goodies as possible.
Among the unique features of the "Ultra LP" are two vinyl-only hidden tracks that are actually hidden beneath the record's center labels. One of those tracks plays at 78 RPM, while the other plays at 45 RPM, supposedly making "Lazaretto" the first three-speed record.
White and company also used dual-groove technology to include both the electric and acoustic intros to Side B's "Just One Drink," so the song will start differently depending on where the listener drops the needle. Side A, meanwhile, plays from the inside out, meaning the special locked groove is on the outside of the record -- supposedly another first.
But Lazaretto's bonus features aren't all about audio. The dead wax area of Side A contains a hand-etched hologram of a spinning angel created by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science.
The record is due out June 10th.
