While a picture disc version of this single was available in 2010 from Third Man Records' subscription-only series the Vault, the black vinyl, picture sleeve version is now available and will be kept in print eternally. The sole single off of the Stripes sophomore De Stijl album, “Hello Operator” was the first song legendary U.K. DJ John Peel ever played by the band. If that wasn’t enough, the B-side showcases the band’s cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” a long-time fan favorite live only ever available on this single.
