Below are two great sounding tracks by Jack White from his upcoming June 2014 album titled Lazaretto. Followed by the story on the how Lazaretto is uniquely being put out on vinyl as a specially tweaked ULTRA LP. It's like some sort of sonic heaven.

Jack White - "High Ball Stepper"


Jack White - "Lazaretto" (Audio)


Lazaretto is being released as what Jack White and his label, Third Man Records, are calling the ULTRA LP.  It's 180 gram vinyl with 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels.  One hidden track plays at 78 RPM, and the other plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record.  Side A plays from the outside in.  The record features dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for "Just One Drink" depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.  There is a matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record.  Both sides end with locked grooves.  The vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format.  The dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record.  Zero compression was used during mastering of this LP.  There is a different running order from the CD/digital version.  The LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version.  Just below is a video on the ULTRA LP.
