Deu no Pitchfork.
Jack White reclamava que, com a total disponibilidade de tudo na internet, o mistério acabou. Mas parou de remar contra a maré e através do seu selo Third Man Records lançou um serviço de assinatura. Além de vinis exclusivos, acesso a vídeos, fórums, fotos, pré venda de ingressos e pay-per-view de shows dos Dead Weather, Raconteurs e White Stripes. Isso por 7 doletas. Pela assinatura Platinum de $20, LPs, camisas e outras guloseimas. Boa sorte, Jack.

Jack White Launches Subscription Service
For years. Jack White has been harping about the sorry state of the music industry and how the internet is making music disposable and how there's no mystery anymore. Now, he's trying to remedy the situation from the inside out with his label, Third Man Records.
Along with putting out Jack-approved music, the imprint has set up a subscription service-- dubbed the Vault-- to provide fans with exclusive vinyl releases and web content. According to a new blog post from Jack: "Pleasing people. What's it like? Someone should let me know. Pleasing fans? Is it possible? Let's find out!" Gotta love this guy's gumption.
The Vault is based on a two-tiered system. Premium members pay $7 a month and get access to videos, forums, photos, ticket pre-sales, artist blogs, and "pay-per-view live concerts of Dead Weather, Raconteurs, White Stripes, and more." Platinum members pay $20 a month and get all that stuff plus a Third Man 12" LP, 7", and t-shirt exclusive to Vault-ers every three months. You can sign up now.
UPDATE: Platinum members' first installment will include the White Stripes' Icky Thump on 180 gram double vinyl, including new artwork and a mono mix, as well as a Dead Weather 7" featuring covers of Pentagram's "Forever My Queen" and "Outside" by Downliners Sect.
