Jack White's 'Freedom At 21'

Earlier this year, Jack White released 1000 helium balloons from the Third Man Records headquarters in Nashville,TN. The balloons were accompanied with a flexi disc of the third single released off of his debut album Blunderbuss. So far, only six of the records have been found. Several of them have been found in pastures and other weird places. After a while of looking at that webpage, I had a thought. 'Why does Jack come up with all these awesome ideas?' This thought, along with the gap in my collection has haunted me until today at noon.

I looked on thirdmanrecords.com, and the big nugget of news was that White will be wide-releasing "Freedom At 21" on an unlimited 45 RPM single. Along with that, all of the covers from the singles released on Blunderbuss fit together to form a nice panoramic picture. (It's cool, believe me!) The flip-side contains the previously unreleased JW track "Inaccessible Mystery."
