  • LILLIE MAE RISCHE JOINS THIRD MAN RECORDS LINE-UP

    Posted by Third Man on 13 October 2016

    SINGER-SONGWRITER-MUSICIAN SETS TO WORK ON NEXT SOLO ALBUM WITH JACK WHITE PRODUCING

    SET TO APPEAR WITH WHITE ON A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION THIS SATURDAY

    TEAMED WITH LANGHORNE SLIM FOR THIRD MAN & LUCK REUNION ‘LUCK MANSION SESSIONS’

     

    We are so pleased to announce Lillie Mae Rische as the latest member of our growing roster. Lillie Mae is well-beloved by Third Man fans, who will be pleased to hear that she currently at work recording her much anticipated solo album with Jack White producing.

    “Lillie Mae has been performing on stage since she was 3 years old,” said White. “She is an incredible writer who can play an array of instruments and has paid her dues from the honky-tonks on Broadway to stages around the world. She is a beloved artist in Nashville, and I think it is safe to say that she is one in a billion. You wont find anyone else quite like this woman no matter how long you live.”

    “I'm proud to have become a part of the Third Man family, where there is no shortage of hard work and dedication to creating and making available the music we love so,” Rische said. “I'm forever thankful to Jack for believing in me and giving me a chance and all the freedom I've needed to make this album.”

    The album follows Rische’s debut single, “Nobody’s” b/w “The Same Eyes,” released in 2014 as part of Third Man’s ongoing Blue Series. Discovered by the legendary Cowboy Jack Clement when playing with her family band The Rische’s (formerly Jypsi), comprised of sisters Amber-Dawn, Scarlett, and Grace, and brother Frank, the country outfit can often still be heard at the historic Layla’s Bluegrass Inn in Nashville. Rische has also spent considerable time as a member of White’s crack touring and recording combo, playing fiddle and mandolin while also lending vocals to such tracks as “Temporary Ground,” from 2014’s LAZARETTO. She will once again join White on fiddle and backing vocals for a special acoustic performance on A Prairie Home Companion with Chris Thile this Saturday, October 15th, along with Dominic Davis and Fats Kaplin. The show will be broadcast live around the world from the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN at 5pm CT via www.prairiehome.org.

    Rische also recently partnered with Langhorne Slim to record two songs as part of Third Man & Luck Reunion’s Luck Mansion Sessions during AmericanaFest in Nashville this past September. The songs will be released on 7-inch vinyl with an accompanying video in early 2017. Watch a sneak peek video of the sessions below...

  • 'Luck Reunion and Third Man Records Present: The Luck Mansion Sessions

    Posted by Third Man on 12 October 2016

    Over the week of September 19-24, while AmericanaFest flooded every corner Nashville, Luck Reunion and yours truly holed up in an East Nashville mansion - bringing together Americana's finest for inspired collaborations. Here is a glimpse of what happened at the Luck Mansion. 

    For five days, artists set up in the parlor room of the pop-up "Luck Mansion" to perform for audiences of no more than 15 covering classics — from Guy Clark to Concrete Blonde — or, in some cases, a brand new song co-written by the pair on-the-spot. (Parker Millsap/Sarah Jarosz, John Paul White/Rodney Crowell, and Langhorne Slim/Lillie Mae Rische all churned out new original tunes!) 

    The tape was rolling for the entire week with Third Man engineers at the helm, capturing these stunning performances to take beyond the walls of the mansion to showcase the soulful collaborations that occurred. Luck Reunion and Third Man Records will be releasing ongoing video of the sessions as well as a collection of 45's, rolling out one-by-one in early 2017. More on that in the coming weeks...

    Have a look at what's went down and what's in store below... and head to NPR for their take on the sessions!

  • Introducing... Vault Package #30

    Posted by Third Man on 5 October 2016

    SUBSCRIBE NOW! DEADLINE: October 31st, 2016

    Third Man is happy to announce the contents of our 30th Vault package, our final offering of 2016. This time around we wanted to showcase something special from every one of Jack White's wide berth of musical projects, as well as some really cool extras from a pretty special event that fans were able to catch a glimpse of during Sunday's Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown Nashville episode, but weren't able to hear in full. We got so excited putting this package together we decided to break with tradition and offer 2 full LPs for the first time.

    Read on, readers...

    Live at Disgraceland: From Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown LP


    Anthony Bourdain and his team descended on Nashville hungry for culture and knowledge (as well as hot chicken, tasting plates, and tequila); they visited every nook and cranny of this town, hung with the locals, ate like czars, partied like rock stars, and woke up every morning fresh as daisies and ready to do it again. Parts Unknown does not come to your city in order to present a slide show of tourist spots and magazine cover spreads. Bourdain wants to understand what makes a city tick. He has a knack for getting down to the marrow of how a town's denizens think and live, why they do what they do in their community, and how that relates to the country at large in this time and place, Earth 2016. This is a man after our own heart and we were so happy to welcome him into our world for a few, too-short days. Their time here culminated with a rager of party at Disgraceland (location... unknown) where The Dead Weather, The Kills, and William Tyler all played jaw dropping electric live sets, living room style, to a house full of well-fed, newly tattooed, appreciative friends. Wish you could have been there? Wish granted: we present the night's musical entertainment in full for your listening pleasure...

    The Dead Weather
    1. Hang You From The Heavens
    2. Gasoline
    3. I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)

    The Kills
    1. Heart of a Dog
    2. Impossible Tracks
    3. Whirling Eye

    William Tyler
    1.We Can't Go Home Again
    2. I'm Gonna Liver Forever (If it Kills Me)
    3. Area Code 601

    Listen to a clip of "Gasoline" from the Dead Weather's set below...

    The Raconteurs - Live at Irving Plaza NYC April 7th 2006 LP


    It's been just over ten years since the first Raconteurs show on American soil. This release celebrates that momentous occasion with another hard slab of wax from the infamous Third Man Records tape vaults. Featuring cover art inspired by the original concert poster by long time visual collaborator Rob Jones, and featuring a set of songs that would prove to be classics, this album is a solid testament to the early fury and energy of those nascent and exciting times when The Raconteurs were first introduced to the world on the live stage.

    Full set list:

    Level
    Intimate Secretary
    Hands
    Steady, As She Goes
    Together
    House
    Store Bought Bones
    Call It A Day
    Yellow Sun
    Broken Boy Soldier
    Five on the Five

    Jack White / The White Stripes Double A-Side split 7" "Love is the Truth (acoustic mix)" b/w "City Lights"


    Two previously unheard, beautiful, and haunting Jack White compositions recently released on the Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 compilation paired together for this Vault only blue and red splatter 7" vinyl in a heavy paper stock sleeve. This will be the only physical version of this 7" available... ever.
