Third Man Records will release a Raconteurs live album as part of its final Vault package for 2013. The Raconteurs Live at the Ryman Auditorium September 15, 2011 is a double-LP concert recording of the rockers playing at the former home of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.

The set features 10-minute long performances of "Blue Veins" and "Carolina Drama" in addition to raucous horn sections on "The Switch and the Spur" and "Many Shades of Black." A bonus DVD of the performance is also included.

This Vault package also includes a seven-inch single with two new studio recordings by Jack White's other other band, the Dead Weather, "Open Up (That's Enough)" and "Rough Detective." The single will be available only through a Vault subscription. 

Dead Weather is planning to record and release additional two-song sets up until 2015 when they'll release a new full album. The songs will be released digitally, but only after Vault packages have been distributed to subscribers. 

Subscriptions for both The Raconteurs Live at the Ryman Auditorium September 15, 2011 and the Dead Weather 7-inch are open now through October 31st on the Third Man Records' website.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
