Jack White's Third Man Records Selling New Song With Detroit Tigers Tickets
From Rolling Stone - August 10, 2017

Jack White's Third Man Records has partnered with the Detroit Tigers for their latest record-selling scheme. Third Man records will release a seven-inch, featuring a new song, "Strike Out," that will only be available to those who purchase a ticket to the Tigers' September 24th game against the Minnesota Twins at Comerica Park, the Detroit Metro-Timesreports.

Fellow Third Man artists Brendan Benson, Ben Blackwell, Dominic Davis and Olivia Jean recorded the track (keeping with the baseball theme, the group is billed as the Brush-Offs). Along with the song, the seven-inch will feature audio from an interview White recorded with Tigers legend and two-time World Series champ Kirk Gibson. The seven-inch will be pressed on Tigers' blue-and-orange vinyl while the cover art features photography from current Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris.

Tickets for the September 24th game are available via the Tigers' website. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Kirk Gibson Foundation and the Detroit Tigers Foundation,an affiliate of Ilitch Charities.
