Jack White - Jack White's Great Gatsby Album Has The Golden Touch

Rocker Jack White is getting into the spirit of the extravagant Roaring Twenties by releasing platinum and gold disc versions of The Great Gatsby soundtrack.

The album for the highly-anticipated film includes songs from Jay Z, Beyonce, will.i.am, Lana Del Rey and Emeli Sande, as well as White's track Love Is Blindness.

The former White Stripes star has now released limited edition vinyl versions of the soundtrack - which are plated with real gold and platinum - through his label, Third Man Records.

A post on the company's website reads, "Disc one is platinum and disc two is gold. These are the first-ever commercially available records made using these precious metals via this process... All of these elements (gold, platinum, aluminium, wood and brass) showcase the Art Deco-meets-modern style, classic meets cutting edge, which is the essence of The Great Gatsby film and Third Man Records."

The vinyls are on sale for $250 (£161) from Friday (10May13).
