The Stripey love of the UK continues, with a very special release of “Rag and Bone,” the first release of material off of Icky Thump, being distributed free with an issue of NME on June 6.

According to NME:

The track will be pressed onto red vinyl, while the flipside will feature a etching designed exclusively by Jack White and will come in special gatefold packaging featuring more artwork by the band.

Following the exclusive release with NME, the band will then release their album’s title track, ‘Icky Thump’, as a single on June 11…

To get hold of the unique release all readers have to do is buy the NME which hits UK newsstands on June 6. Details of how those outside Britain will be able to pre-order this unique issue will be available nearer the time on NME.COM.

  1. Oops! I buy it in Border’s but it comes about 4 or 5 days after it is released in the UK. So it will be about June 10th or 11th that we will see it it the states.

  2. Often the NME front cover giveaways are not available when the paper’s sold abroad – so hopefully none of you Americans wil be able to get hold of it.

  3. Actually, yes they are available at Borders. The problem with Borders is that you have to go in everyday from Tues on to make sure you get a copy because they don’t send that many.

  4. U-S-A!
