This year’s Record Store Day ambassador, Jack White, is helping fans make their own vinyl records

Those heading to Jack White’s Third Man Records on Record Store Day (April 20) are in for a special affair, as the Record Store Day ambassador will be featuring a recording booth in the record label’s Nashville store where music fans can craft their own seven-inch vinyl records.

“Actively venturing to your local record shop is one of those honors and privileges in this life that we just shouldn’t take for granted,” White said in an official statement. “Certain beautiful experiences can only happen in the environment of a record store and I just thought that nothing could drive that point home more than a one-of-a-kind machine that lets you not only record your own vinyl record, but send it to anyone, anywhere in the world to share a song, poem, or private message with.”

Curious? Head a here to check out a short video explaining the process, featuring none other than White and his Raconteurs buddy Brendon Benson.

Record Store Day will also bring a special, 10th anniversary edition of the White Stripes’ famed 2003 album, “Elephant,” on 12-inch vinyl. For more on all White has planned for Record Store Day, head to the Third Man Records website.
