Rocker Jack White is inviting fans to record themselves on vinyl by opening a one-of-a-kind recording booth in celebration of this year's (13) International Record Store Day (Rsd).

The former White Stripes frontman is the official ambassador of Rsd and in honour of the occasion his label, Third Man Records, will open its Third Man Recording Booth in Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday (20Apr13).

White has had an original 1947 Voice-O-Graph refurbished and installed in his record store so members of the public can come along and make their own six-inch phonograph disc.

He says, "In one of my final acts as Record Store Day ambassador, I encourage everyone who comes to the Third Man record store in Nashville to be able to hear themselves on a vinyl record, and maybe even mail it to someone they love.

"Actively venturing to your local record shop is one of those honors and privileges in this life that we just shouldn't take for granted. Certain beautiful experiences can only happen in the environment of a record store and I just thought that nothing could drive that point home more than a one-of-a-kind machine that lets you not only record your own vinyl record, but send it to anyone, anywhere in the world to share a song, poem, or private message with.

"I know those warm, scratchy tones send tingles up (and sometimes down) my spine. Even if you aren't instrumentally inclined, you could hold up an iPhone playing a song and sing along with the music and combine the best of all worlds tangible, digital and romantic."

The singer will also release a special reissue of The White Stripes' classic 2003 album Elephant to commemorate Record Store Day.
