Watch The Raconteurs Play Their First Show In 8 Years

Last week, the Raconteurs announced that their new album, Help Us Stranger, will be out this June. It will be their first full-length since 2008’s Consolers Of The Lonely. Last night, Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler performed together for the first time in eight years at Third Man Records’ 10th anniversary concert in Nashville.

White’s mom introduced the band. They played a 15-song set, including “Help Me Stranger,” “Shine The Light On Me,” “Sunday Driver,” “Now That You’re Gone,” and “Bored and Razed” from their forthcoming album.

The Raconteurs debuted their cover of Donovan’s “Hey Gyp (Dig the Slowness).” They also performed their version of “Keep On Trash” by the Go. Watch footage from the show below.
