Rocker Jack White is getting literary – he and his partners at record label Third Man Records have launched a publishing offshoot.

Third Man Books will launch with the release of “Language Lessons: Volume I,” which features a book of poetry and prose and two vinyl albums of “jazz, psychedelic-punk, poetry, blues and pop”.

The set, which will feature pieces by Dale Ray Phillips, CD Wright and Adrian Matejka, will be available starting Aug. 5.

White and his associates have released a statement to coincide with the announcement of the new venture. It reads: “Third Man Books, like Language Lessons, will be fearless, imaginative, and eclectic. We hope to be a welcome addition to what is already a very compelling and thrilling independent American literary landscape.”
