Jack White is going London calling.

The White Stripes frontman has announced the opening of a Third Man Records store in the English capital city. It’ll be the label’s first international physical location, and third overall, joining shops in White’s birthplace of Detroit and his adopted hometown of Nashville.

Third Man Records London will feature two levels of retail space and a live performance venue dubbed The Blue Basement. It’ll also serve as TMR’s European headquarters.

To celebrate the store’s grand opening on September 25, Third Man is putting out a series of exclusive new releases from U.K. artists including The Jesus and the Mary Chain, Paul Weller and Gina Birch of The Raincoats. The pieces will be available at all three TMR physical stores and online, though special limited edition yellow vinyl versions will be exclusive to the London location.

We’d tell you to alert the Queen of England, but then again, she already knows about it.
