Watch Third Man Records Play A Record In Space

For their latest stunt, Jack White’s Third Man Records are planning on “making vinyl history” by playing the first record in space. In celebration of the label’s seventh anniversary and their three millionth record pressed, they’re launching a gold-plated 12″ master of Carl Sagan’s “A Glorious Dawn” into space on the Icarus Craft, a custom-built “space-proof” turntable attached to a high-altitude balloon. Third Man is hosting “launch” parties at its Cass Corridor Detroit and Nashville stores today, and they’re also showing a pre-recorded stream of the launch online at 12PM EST. Watch below.
