The Raconteurs may have kept their fans patiently waiting 11 years for the arrival of their latest album, 2019’s Help Us Stranger, but they aren’t pulling any punches when it comes to their next live album.
According to an announcement from Third Man Records on Friday, the rock band’s three-show run at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, OK in October 2019 will arrive via the label’s vault subscription series. The live album will be the band’s first since 2017’s Live at Irving Plaza NYC.
The 3LP live album will chronicle what was supposedly the first time any artist has ever hosted three consecutive sold-out shows at Cain’s Ballroom, according to the announcement.
The post on the label website reads, “Captured at the pinnacle of the band’s touring behind their chart-topping album ‘Help Us Stranger’, the electrifying live performances place a raw, unbound energy behind the entire breadth of the band’s catalog, including gems from their 2008 LP ‘Consolers of the Lonely’ and their 2006 debut ‘Broken Boy Soldiers’.”
The 3LP package will arrive in a tri-fold jacket featuring artwork designed by Matthew Jacobson, and will come as colored vinyl pressed in vibrant copper, green, and black.
Bonus items will also feature a live Blu-Ray disc concert film recording of Brendan Benson and Jack White‘s duet performance at Third Man Records’ Cass Corridor storefront on White’s 44th birthday this past July. The birthday performance in front of just 300 attenteeds featured live renditions of Raconteurs “Only Child” and “Now That You’re Gone”, the White Stripes‘ “Sugar Never Tasted So Good”, and Benson’s own “Metarie”, to name a few.
Subscriptions for Vault 43 package containing the new live album are open until January 31st, 2020. Head to the Third Man Records’ website for more info on access to the forthcoming release. Scroll down for album artwork and tracklist info.
