Jack White, A Bucket List Dream, and Outer Space

Jack White’s Third Man Records released a teaser video for a new project claiming to “make vinyl history.” The video features a smattering of stars in the background with a rotating record labeled with Carl Sagan’s “A Glorious Dawn” that the record label put out back in 2009. News source The Vinyl Factory believes it might be leading up to Jack White living out his long-discussed ambition of playing the first vinyl record in outer space. Fan theories lean towards a possible reissue of the Voyager Gold Record, which was sent into space on both Voyager probes in 1977. Either way, the video coincides with today’s 47th anniversary of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon, and with a reveal date of July 30th, fans won’t have to wait too long to find out with Jack White has up his vinyl sleeve.
