The Raconteurs have announced details of a new live DVD, which is titled 'Live At Montreux'.

According to the band's official website, the film was recorded during their appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2008 and will be released on June 18.

In September last year, The Raconteurs' bassist Jack Lawrence admitted that he had no idea if the band would be recording new material in the future. "We're all doing other projects, still, so it's hard to tell what's going to happen," he said. "We never really plan anything; it just depends on what the mood is with all of us."

The Raconteurs, which also features Brendan Benson and Lawrence's bandmate in The Greenhornes Patrick Keeler, formed in 2005 and released their debut album 'Broken Boy Soldiers' the following year. Their second LP, 'Consolers Of The Lonely', followed in 2008.

Earlier this week, meanwhile, it was confirmed that Jack White will headline the Third Man Records showcase event at SXSW in Austin, Texas.

The former White Stripes man will release his first solo LP 'Blunderbuss' on April 23 – scroll down to the bottom of the page to hear him play two tracks from the record, 'Love Interruption' and 'Sixteen Saltines', on US television show Saturday Night Live.

The singer will also return to the UK in the summer and will play at Radio 1's Hackney Weekend on June 23-24, alongside Lana Del Rey and The Maccabees.

The tracklisting for 'Live At Montreux' is as follows:

'Consoler Of The Lonely'?
'Hold Up'
?'You Don’t Understand Me'?
Top Yourself'
?'Old Enough?'
'Keep It Clean'
?'Intimate Secretary'?
'Level'?
'Steady, As She Goes'?
'The Switch and The Spur'?
'Rich Kid Blues'?
'Blue Veins'
?'Many Shades of Black'
?'Broken Boy Soldier'
?'Salute Your Solution'?
'Carolina Drama'
