Jack White founded Third Man Records in Detroit 14 years ago, and now it’s heading back to its hometown: The label announced Tuesday that they’re opening up offices and a store in the Michigan city.
White teamed up with Tom Kartsotis, founder of Detroit-based company Shinola, to buy the building, which is in Detroit’s Cass Corridor. “From the great visual artists like Gordon Newton to the music of the Gories, and the birth of the Detroit garage rock scene, the Corridor has nutured Detroit’s soul and inventiveness for decades,” White said in a statement.
“That spirit pushes forward with Shinola’s passion and will come full circle for the artists of the Corridor that work with Third Man Records to plant a new foundation there to help keep the creative spirit alive for decades to come.”
Third Man Records’ Detroit location is set to open by Nov. 27.
