Listen up, buttholes! Jack White's Third Man Records is at it again, gearing up to release yet another 7-inch single in their ongoing Blue Series. This latest installment, out on Valentine's Day, will feature three songs from noted Butthole Surfers frontman, wild-eyed lunatic and Larry Sanders Show guest/enthusiast Gibby Haynes. Here's an excerpt from the announcement, as posted by TMR consigliere Ben Swank:

The three-song single features two originals "You Don't Have To Be Smart" and "Horse Named George," and a cover of Adrenalin OD's "Paul's Not Home," a lost classic (cough cough... ahem) that originally appeared on the 1982 New York Thrash compilation alongside the first ever recorded material by Beastie Boys and some of the earliest known recordings by Bad Brains, Kraut and others.

The limited edition component of this single will be another first for Third Man Records... a FLEX-RAY DISC. We'll be selling a very limited number of copies of this single pressed on old medical x-rays from The Rolling Record Store in Austin, TX (The Butthole Surfers old stomping grounds...) during this year's South By Southwest festival. So stay tuned here for more info on the RRS at SXSW, including more limited edition records, new items and merchandise, live performances from the truck and all the locations where we'll be posted up this year.

Available for presale now in our webstore and will ship in time to arrive so you can bestow upon your sweetheart on St. Valentines Day.

Here's a link to that pre-order. Stream a little sample of "Paul's Not Home" below or via Third Man's Soundcloud page. And because I really just can't stress enough how awesome it is, I've embedded that afore-linked Larry Sanders Show performance after the jump. Why the hell not.
