The Dead Weather’s “Open Up (That’s Enough)” b/w “Rough Detective” is an upcoming 7″ that will be released through the platinum edition of Third Man’s Vault Subscription. The label writes:

The 7″ this go-round is incredibly special. Two BRAND NEW studio recordings from the Dead Weather. “Open Up (That’s Enough)” and “Rough Detective” are unlike anything else the band has ever done and are both ample reminders of the ferocity of this motley collection of low-lifes, grifters and ne’er-do-wells. These songs are not throw-aways. These songs are not demos. These songs are not outtakes. This 7″ will ONLY be available via Vault subscription. No other 7″ of these songs will be made. The whole thing is pressed on striking yellow jacket vinyl and coupled with a custom glue-pocket picture sleeve, a slight shift from the Vault’s usual die-cut company sleeves.

Is there more to come from this? Yes there is. The Dead Weather’s plan is to record and release two-song sets until 2015 at which time they will release a full album that contains these singles plus many more album-only tracks. It’s a unique long-term plan for new music from this incendiary group. The songs WILL be released digitally, but not until Vault packages have been dispatched to subscribers. The goal is that physical copies are out there first.

Listen to a snippet of the A-side below.

Along with the 7″, subscribers receive a concert album and DVD from the Raconteurs, Live At The Ryman Auditorium.
