Death From Above 1979 are set to release a live album recorded at Jack White’s Nashville studio last year.
The LP, which was recorded directly to vinyl at Third Man Records last July, is finally being released this Friday (April 22). You can listen to the track ‘Right On Frankenstein’ below.
Death From Above 1979 follow artists such as Jenny Lewis, The Kills and Mudhoney in recording a live album in Third Man Records’ Blue Room.
Speaking about the experience on Third Man Records’ official website, the Canadian duo said: “We’ve always been wary of live recording experiences because they can end up so sterile and flat sounding and they hardly ever translate the feeling of the actual show. The feeling of the moment.
“When we were asked to record Live At Third Man Records we agreed without hesitation. If there is one person who knows about feeling the moment, it’s Jack White. He’s the patron saint of vibes. We cut two twenty minute long sets straight to acetate. No second chances. Terrifying but alive. Third Man were such phenomenal hosts and the audience went bananas with us. It was such an honour to be a part of. The whole thing was such a rush, it almost feels like a dream.”
They added: “Oh yeah, Mick Jagger was there. Did we mention that we went out to dinner with Jack and Mick after and then went bowling until 3am? It’s also worth noting that Jack got the highest score followed by Sebastien [Grainger]. Mick and Jesse[ F Keeler] tied.”
