The Raconteurs have announced today’s release of their new EP, LIVE AT ELECTRIC LADY, exclusively via Spotify. Recorded in late 2019, the EP includes seven explosive live tracks recorded at the legendary New York City studio, showcasing favorites like “Level” and “Old Enough” alongside songs from last year’s chart-topping HELP US STRANGER (Third Man Records). In addition, LIVE AT ELECTRIC LADY features a special introduction from famed filmmaker Jim Jarmusch as well as an electrifying bonus studio version of Richard Hell and the Voidoids’ seminal “Blank Generation,” recorded that day.
Furthermore, THE RACONTEURS PRESENT LIVE AT ELECTRIC LADY, THE ENHANCED ALBUM will be visually enhanced with a number of Spotify Canvas and Storylines incorporating never-before-seen video footage from the event. Highlights include Jarmusch’s exclusive interview with The Raconteurs as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the recording of “Blank Generation,” featuring a special visit from original Voidoids guitarist Ivan Julian explaining the song’s instantly identifiable guitar hook to the band.
“I’ve always loved that guitar part and never really sat down and exactly figured out what he’s doing,” says Jack White. “How amazing for Ivan to show up and show us how to do it.”
