On Sunday, Third Man Records announced that it released White’s newest single via helium balloons. One thousand flexi-disc records of White’s song “Freedom at 21” were attached to bright blue helium balloons and released from Third Man’s downtown Nashville headquarters on Sunday.
No but I know where a balloon is, I just did not know that is what attached to it. I will go see of it is still there this afternoon

Jack White will kick off the release of his first solo album with a concert streamed live online, to be directed by Gary Oldman.
The show will be the first installment in the third season of American Express’ “Unstaged” series, which pairs top musical acts with renowned filmmakers. White’s concert at New York’s Webster Hall will be streamed live April 27 (9 p.m. EST) on VEVO, free of charge.
A few days prior, on April 24, White will release Blunderbuss, the first solo album from the former White Stripe.

Dunno....some popular acts get popular threads and sometimes get exceptions until we get them on the farm. The one Mars Volta thread lasted a while. There's the Neil Young one too. Haven't really thought about it too much.
The Jack White webcast goes down tonight, and YES it's going to be directed by actor Gary Oldman. Looks like a good time all the way, a live performance as part of the "Unstaged" concert series. Jack White’s “Unstaged” video goes online tonight, April 27 at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT. The show happens at the official Jack White VEVO page at www.youtube.com/user/JackWhiteVEVO/unstaged. “It just fell from the sky. Occasionally you get calls and they just drop in. I didn’t have to think very quickly about it. I just said, ‘Yeah, that sounds very good,’ ” said Gary Oldman to the NY Times about his chance to direct the webcast.
This is all being done up to support this week's release of the new Jack White Blunderbuss album, the biggest indie rock (sorry for the classification) release of the Spring and perhaps on of the biggest shows going this Summer. See the Jack White tour at music festivals like the Bonnaroo Music Festival, Sasquatch Music Festival; or you can check his recent performance on German TV, or the Jack White video for “Sixteen Saltines” or “Love Interruption.” In the meantime, plenty of yucks in the videos above as Jack White and Gary Oldman play out scripted hijinx made to look spontaneous (it's supposed to be UNSTAGED, after all) to promote the Jack White webcast. BE THERE OR BE ... there for the video replay.
Check out more by clicking on the five different "VIEW" links above to watch the five songs. For best playback performance, press the stop button on a video before watching a new one.
Could be a mistake.....could be a leak.....we'll know soon.
