Early Bob Seger single to be reissued on colored vinyl for Record Store Day

Third Man RecordsA limited-edition vinyl single featuring “2+2=?,” a 1968 song by Bob Seger‘s early band the Bob Seger System, will be released on April 22 as part of the 2017 Record Store Day event.

The seven-inch disc is pressed on yellow vinyl, and will be issued by ex-White Stripes frontman Jack White‘s Third Man Records label.

“2+2=?” was the first Bob Seger System single released by Capitol Records, and appeared on the group’s debut album, 1968’s Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man. The tune, whose title is pronounced “two plus two equals what?,” is an anti-Vietnam War anthem. The vinyl reissue’s B-side will feature “Ivory,” another tune from Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man.

A black vinyl version of the single will be released at a later date. Both versions of the disc are being manufactured at the Third Man label’s new pressing plant in Detroit, Seger’s hometown.

The single will be housed in a sleeve featuring the artwork used on an original European release of the songs.
