The Raconteurs have announced a forthcoming documentary and live album to both titled, “Live At Electric Lady”, with both projects scheduled to arrive this Friday, May 29th.

Live At Electric Lady will document The Raconteurs’ clandestine performance at the iconic New York recording studio in support of the band’s most recent album, 2019’s Help Us Stranger. The EP will be released exclusively to Spotify, and will feature like takes on a catalogue-spanning selection of songs, including a cover of Richard Hell & The Voidoids“Blank Generation”. The documentary, directed by filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, will include video of the live performance, along with interviews with the band and behind-the-scenes footage.

A Facebook post announcing Live At Electric Lady arrived with a one-minute video trailer and a pre-save link for the “special enhanced album.” The trailer offered snippets of artist interviews and the live performance as well as a cameo from Jarmusch, who noted that the Electric Lady is “Kind of a magical, mythical place.”

“Everyone who’s a musician on stage is doing something that they love and they’re trying to share it with someone else,” added frontman Jack White in the trailer. “Some people fall in the trap of it being about authenticity, but I don’t think it’s about that. I think it’s about the attitude of what you did was the best part. Not whether you got all the notes right, but your point of what you were trying to accomplish was evidence to us in the crowd.”

In September 2019, The Raconteurs visited legendary New York City recording studio Electric Lady Studios to record a live EP and interview with Jim Jarmusch in honor of the studios’ 50th Anniversary – exclusively for Spotify. ‘The Raconteurs: Live at Electric Lady’ is a documentary and concert film showcasing the day, including their explosive 7-song live performance
