Death From Above 1979 Announce ‘Live at Third Man Records,’ Share Raw ‘Right On, Frankenstein’
Death From Above 1979 will drop a live album on Jack White’s Third Man Records this Friday (April 22).
Sebastian Grainger and Jesse Keeler cut the 11-track effort at Third Man’s flagship location in Nashville, and it will land in stores in just two days’ time. The album, which was recorded direct to acetate, leans heavily on material from the band’s 2014 comeback album, The Physical World, but also boasts a few tracks from their 2004 debut You’re A Woman, I’m a Machine. Today, the duo has shared their raw Third Man take of “Right On, Frankenstein!” Take a listen below:
In a press release, the band calls White “the patron saint of vibes” and describes the experience as “terrifying but alive”:
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.
And, hey, they got to bowl with Mick Jagger:
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. Mick and Jesse tied.
