Rolling Stone

After a playful Twitter Q&A session on Monday, Jay-Z revealed that his song "Open Letter" will be released on vinyl through Jack White's Third Man Records. The song, which didn't make it onto the rapper's album Magna Carta Holy Grail, will be available as a "playable letter."

"It's in a letter. . . you can play the letter. . . it's amazing," Jay-Z told Hot 97 yesterday. "You open the letter, and you can actually play the card."

White's Third Man Records also released gold and platinum vinyl versions of The Great Gatsby soundtrack, for which Jay-Z served as executive producer. 

"Jack White, you know, aside from being a brilliant musician, he has this vinyl store so he makes these special edition vinyls, and we're gonna put ['Open Letter'] on the vinyl," said Jay-Z.
