On this day in music history: April 1, 2003 - “Elephant”, the fourth album by The White Stripes is released. Produced by Jack White, it is recorded at Toe-Rag Studios in Hackney, London UK and BBC Maida Vale Studios in London in November 2001 and April 2002. Issued as the follow up to the Detroit, MI based Alt-rock duos’ breakthrough album “White Blood Cells”, the bulk of the new album will be recorded in only two weeks worth of studio time in the Spring of 2002. It will be recorded on a vintage eight-track multi-track tape machine, using other vintage outboard gear and microphones, deliberately avoiding the use of any modern recording equipment during the sessions. Featuring the band’s signature stripped down driving sound, the album will be very well received upon its release, cementing The White Stripes musical reputation and becoming their best selling and highest charting album to date. It will also be released with several variations of the albums’ cover art (taken by photographer Patrick Pantano) for the US and UK CD and LP releases. A limited edition LP pressed on red and black vinyl will be released to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the albums’ original release for Record Store Day in 2013. It will spin off four singles including “Seven Nation Army” (#1 Modern Rock, #76 Pop, #12 Mainstream Rock), “I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself” (#25 Modern Rock), and “The Hardest Button To Button” (#8 Modern Rock). “Elephant” will peak at number six on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
