The Raconteurs join Tidal for special ‘In Conversation’ video interview

Interview features exclusive performance footage from surprise NYC shows

After ten years of silence, The Raconteurs celebrated the long-awaited release of their third studio album, Help Us Stranger, with surprise performances in two of New York’s most intimate venues: Coney Island Baby and Baby’s All Right. Today, TIDAL is announcing the release of an exclusive interview and documentary video featuring clips of the performances via an episode of In Conversation, TIDAL’s ongoing interview series with artists that feature a reflective conversation on their music, their background and more. Live on July 25th, the video features Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler discussing their roots, the evolution of the music scene and the future of rock music.

In a time in which “the music scene changes weekly” and “there’s no cliques (which is a good thing)” (Jack White, 2019), this episode of In Conversation sees rock and roll back at the forefront of the NYC scene — all through the lenses of Super 8, VHS and digital video. Fans will get a front row seat at these sweaty, intimate shows — and a peek into the brains of the band. Starting on July 25th, the documentary will be available on

“Seeing an iconic band like The Raconteurs play 250-person venues is a truly mesmerizing experience,” states Tony Gervino, TIDAL’s SVP of Culture and Content. “New York crowds are famous for making artists earn their applause, and the band had the crowd rocking out all night. We’re so glad TIDAL members got a chance to see that in-person and that fans across the globe can experience it too.”

The band continues their world tour with dates across North America through the rest of 2019.
