The White Stripes Set To Release “Icky Thump” At Midnight

Jack and Meg finally give us something from Icky Thump tonight. Yes, we’re this desperate to hear it. Here’s a message from the Stripes:

The White Stripes’ first single, ‘Icky Thump’, will be available exclusively online through the iTunes music stores (US and Canada only) starting at 12:01 am this Thursday, April 26th.

Third Man Records/XL Recordings will also be releasing CD and vinyl versions of the ‘Icky Thump’ single on June 11th in the UK. The formats and track listings are as follows:

White vinyl 7″ (companion to the NME distributed record that will be given away with copies of the magazine on stands June 6th)

A. “Icky Thump”
B. Etching (no audio)

Standard 7″
A. “Icky Thump”
B. “Baby Brother”

CD single
1. “Icky Thump”
2. “Catch Hell Blues”

The NME 7″ will be red (shocker), containing “Rag And Bone” on the A side and an etching on the flip. And because we’ve been all wrapped up in the Stripes’ artsy side, take the jump for the “Icky Thump” single’s cover design.
