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 15 old and new songs, including material from their forthcoming album, two new songs, and live debuts of “Sunday Driver,” “Now That You’re Gone,” “Bored and Razed,” “Help Me Stranger,” and “Shine the Light on Me.” Watch footage from the show below.
