Jack White, possibly our foremost living musical historian, is excited to help usher in the dawn of a new era in video technology with the premiere of his very own virtual reality app, “JACK WHITE: THIRD-D”. In partnership with Jaunt, the technology company building the hardware and software to make truly immersive cinematic VR possible, Jack & Third Man have brought forth a mind-blowing mobile application that allows fans with a Google Cardboard viewer (learn more here) and a recent 5″ or 6″ Android phone to see him perform in a way no one ever has. “JACK WHITE: THIRD-D” was filmed using state of the art technology – Jaunt’s proprietary 360 degree, stereoscopic 3D cameras and 3D sound-field microphones; it features music mixed in Dolby Atmos. Be “there” as Jack tears through “Freedom at 21″ and “Ball and Biscuit” at Fenway Park and the seminal “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Download “JACK WHITE: THIRD-D” now at the Google Play store or directly from Jaunt.

To celebrate this leap for concert-going mankind, Third Man Records will be giving away special edition Third Man Google Cardboard headsets to the first 75 Android phone users that purchase Jack’s Lazaretto ULTRA LP in the Nashville store on Wednesday, December 10. Third Man will also be showcasing the new app with three on-site demo cardboard headsets equipped with Samsung S5 phones in their store starting on Wednesday.

Check out a standard, non-VR teaser video for the app here.

Jaunt delivers a completely new way to present and experience media. The Jaunt platform makes use of advanced algorithms and computational photography software to enable the creation of seamless, omnidirectional 3D experiences. In addition to this new content, Jaunt will continue to focus its efforts on enabling top content producers to create a diverse array of cinematic VR experiences that will be available for consumers to view and download across many platforms.

Last Friday, Jack’s second full length album, Lazaretto (Third Man Records/Columbia), hauled in three GRAMMY award nominations including Best Alternative Music Album. Lazaretto‘s title track secured nominations for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance. The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards will air Sunday, February 8, 2015 on the CBS Television Network from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

Jack will hit the road once again in January when he plays Austin, Nashville and New York. Tickets for these shows can be found here. See below for a complete itinerary.

Films Of Innocence

Monday, December 8, 2014 — As tickets go on sale today to the general public for U2’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015, the band has unveiled a bold new artistic initiative in the form of Films of Innocence: A visionary collection of 11 films by the world’s most vital urban visual artists, each inspired by one of the 11 tracks on U2’s Songs of Innocence album.

From 4pm GMT / 11am ET, the same day that general on sales open for U2’s return to indoor arenas for 22 pairs of shows in 19 cities, the U2-pioneered Films of Innocence project is celebrating the visceral power of urban art with 24-hour exclusive premieres across the following 11 platforms:

Stereogum  – “The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)” by Oliver Jeffers
Complex – “Every Breaking Wave” by Robin Rhode
The Nerdist   “California (There Is No End To Love)” – D*Face
NPR – “Song For Someone” by Mode 2
Dezeen – “Iris (Hold Me Close)” by Chloe Early
Pitchfork – “Volcano” by Ganzeer
Nowness – “Raised by Wolves” by Vhils
Dazed Digital – “Cedarwood Road” by Maser
Rolling Stone – “Sleep Like A Baby” by ROA
Paper Magazine – “This Is Where You Can Find Me Now” by DALeast
Juxtapoz – “The Troubles” by Todd James

Following the 24-hour premieres, the Films Of Innocence collection will be available for purchase via iTunes and Amazon. U2.com subscribers will receive an exclusive bonus in the form of Conor Harington’s visual interpretation of the Songs Of Innocence bonus track “Crystal Ballroom.”

With the political murals of Northern Ireland as a reference point, U2 chose the artists and gave them complete creative freedom to create personal responses to U2’s music. The result is an exhilarating display of diversity in approach, style and commentary. Powerful and cognizant, Films of Innocence takes these artists and their works from the streets to the screen, as they scale the globe, play with time, and weave between heightened reality and animated dreamscapes. The result is an essential visual counterpoint to the album.

THIRD MAN RECORDS PRESENTS:
DANNY KROHA “ANGELS WATCHING OVER ME”

Angels Watching Over Me

Angels Watching Over Me

“I was very reluctant to put this stuff out because there’s a ton of rootsy cornballs out there doing this kind of stuff and all of them play guitar way better than me. But I think I have something here that doesn’t really sound like anything else. The numbers that bounce really bounce. The numbers that drone really drone. I’m excited about this.” – Danny Kroha

We are too! The founding member of THE GORIES tried his hand at the banjo, dulcimer, diddley bow, washtub bass, jug and mouth organ for his first release under his own name, Angels Watching Over Me, and the result is a distinct step forward for gospel and folk. Kroha has consistently pushed himself to reinvention, and has influenced countless imitators and poseurs along the way. His guitar work with Rocket 455 is the most quintessentially “Detroit” rock and roll this side of the MC5. The record was recorded in a 100-year-old, vacant house in Detroit, and features songs popularized by the likes of Son House, I.D. Stamper, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and Brother Will Hairston. This is a decidedly different Danny Kroha than we’ve seen in his past projects with Demolition Doll Rods and Danny and the Darleans, and we have to say… we like him. With Angels Watching Over Me, he firmly establishes himself as one of the pre-eminent practitioners of a genre we hold so dear.

The record will be available for pre-order mid-January with an official release date of January 27th. Check out a sneak peak of the song “Run Little Children,” the only Kroha original on the record, below.

https://soundcloud.com/thirdmanrecords/danny-kroha-run-little-children-off-angels-watching-over-me

“I was sitting by a pond in a park in Rochester, New York, playing my diddley bow, and this one came to me. Son House lived in that town for some years; I like to think he was smiling on me.” – Danny Kroha

THIRD MAN RECORDS

LILLIE MAE RISCHE BLUE SERIES 7″ AVAILABLE DECEMBER 9

Lillie Mae Rische

Lillie Mae Rische

Closing out an exceptional year at Third Man Records is a release that’s pretty near and dear to us. It should come as no surprise to the TMR faithful that Lillie Mae Rische is a complete bad-ass and an all-around powerhouse of melody. She first joined the TMR family a little over two years ago and ever since – whether onstage with Jack White and his band or in the studio – she’s been, how you say, delivering us from evil with fiddle playing so stupefying as to propel listeners into the jaws of heavenly awe. Feel me on this, y’all?

Here we have Lillie Mae Rische center stage. Her contribution to our Blue Series showcases two original songs, charming and plaintive, with the B-side hitting us with a story of hearts on the road, having to reconcile distance and desire. Meanwhile, the A-side is a gentle yet stern anthem about the sweet and sour circumstances of being alone. All in a voice that’s sweeter than peach brandy.

Joining her are some longtime Third Man contributors Carl Broemel, Dominic Davis, Jack Lawrence, and local drum god, Whip Triplet.

The 7” inch vinyl is now available for pre-order and we be made available in fine record stores worldwide on December 9th.

PAUL McCARTNEY

NEW SONG “HOPE FOR THE FUTURE” TO BE GLOBALLY RELEASED DECEMBER 8

Digital bundle to include Paul’s original anthem from one of the biggest entertainment releases of the year Destiny plus four exclusive mixes

Hope For The Future

Hope For The Future

Paul McCartney’s new song “Hope For The Future” will be globally released on December8 . The song was written by Paul for the record-breaking video game Destiny, and until now has been exclusively available within the game itself. Produced by Giles Martin, “Hope For The Future” is as epic as the game, which sold more than $325 million worldwide in its first five days*.

It goes without saying that Paul McCartney has written countless hit singles, orchestral scores, electronica works, film themes, and has consistently changed the world with his music. Listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Most Successful Composer and Recording Artist of All Time, Paul has now added another first to his impressive list: “Hope For The Future” marks the first time that Paul has ever written specifically for a video game — one poised to become the most successful franchise of its kind.

Details of the release are confirmed today and the original version of the track from the Destinycredits will be made digitally available alongside four special mixes.

The tracklisting is as follows:

1) Hope For The Future (Main)
2) Hope For The Future (Thrash)
3) Hope For The Future (Beatsession Mix)
4) Hope For The Future (Jaded Mix)
5) Hope For The Future (Mirwais Mix)

Talking about the writing process Paul said:

“When you’re writing something like ‘Hope For The Future’, which is custom made, it is like doing a portrait for someone. You have to use your imagination and work out what they need, what they’re going to want and then what you want to give them. Then you’ve got to combine those three things into something that you still think maintains integrity. So in the game you’re a Guardian of the last city on Earth so that suggested to me the ‘hope for the future’ idea and I went from there. Then I thought it is not just a game song, this will get played outside the game so it has got to be stand alone too, you can’t have references to aliens or people will think ‘what’s he talking about?’ So it had to have its own stand alone meaning and integrity.”

From Bungie, the creators of the Halo® franchiseActivision Publishing Inc., the creators and publishers that brought you Call of Duty®, Destiny is the biggest new video game franchise launch in history and one of the biggest entertainment launches of the year.
