Jack White's Third Man Records will re-release The Go's "Whatcha Doin'" as part of the label's subscription Vault series.

The album will come out on "summer sun" yellow colored vinyl and will be packaged with an album of "Attic Demos" and a 7-inch single featuring alternative takes of two fo the songs, as well as a photo book, "The Go in Black and White."

The group has been on hiatus, but it's music has been licensed to TV show ssuch as "Entourage," "My Name is Earl" and others and has been used in advertisements worldwide.

Those wishing to obtain the "Whatcha Doin'" can join Vault through July 31 via thirdmanrecords.com.
