That Jack White seems always up to something. This time, it’s a Bob Seger reissue for Record Store Day on April 22.

Here are the details. According to Third Man Records, this is the first vinyl reissue of Bob Seger System’s “2+2=?” in nearly four decades.

The limited edition yellow-colored vinyl record will be remastered directly from the analog tapes by Robert Vosgien and cut by Ron McMaster at Capitol Mastering.

A standard black vinyl version will be released after Record Store Day.┬áBoth versions are being manufactured at Third Man’s new pressing plant in Detroit.┬áBacked with the classic track “Ivory”, this 7-inch single will feature artwork originally used on European picture sleeves for both songs.

As the debut release under the Bob Seger System moniker, “2+2=?” is a landmark moment in the evolution and career of Bob Seger.

Here’s how Third Man describes it:

The January 1968 release of “2+2=?”, Seger’s first single on Capitol Records, is an emotional, spirited anti-war protest delivered at the height of escalating tensions in Vietnam. Stylistically, the hypnotic, repetitive bass line is accented by a stinging fuzz guitar accompaniment, all paired with Seger’s signature vocal rasp.
