Jack White praises Metallica’s acquisition of a vinyl pressing plant

Musician and owner of Third Man Records, Jack White, has praised metal band Metallica for purchasing a majority stake in Furnace Record Pressing, which is one of the largest vinyl pressing plants in the US. The acquisition comes as vinyl sales exceeded CD sales for the first time in 35 years in 2022, with music sales increasing by a total of 3%. White had recently written an open letter to major record labels urging them to invest in their own vinyl pressing plants. In response, Metallica said they were “grateful to be able to do this after all these years” and cited White as a pioneer of the vinyl revolution.
