The efficiency was a part of a full day of music and a sprawling road pageant celebrating Third Man Data, which arrange store lengthy earlier than Nashville’s “It Metropolis” increase. When the black and yellow storefront opened in 2009, it was a pivotal second within the city’s sea change from nation music capital to cutting-edge Southern hub, filled with concepts, bands and artistic masterminds that had been able to problem the concept that New York and L.A. may solely function the nation’s principal creative facilities.

“It’s a label run by musicians,” says Hedley. “That’s uncommon. Most label executives couldn’t inform you shit from shinola, all they care about is greenback indicators.

They care in regards to the data they launch they usually care in regards to the artists making these data. I assure you 90% of the executives at any given label on Music Row couldn’t inform you half the names on their roster. Each single individual working at Third Man may rattling close to inform you my life story. They offer a shit and that’s refreshing in Music Metropolis.”

Third Man can be releasing Assist Us Stranger — the Raconteurs’ third studio LP and their first in over a decade since 2008’s Consolers of the Lonely — on June 21st. The Raconteurs will play two extra reveals at Third Man’s Blue Room this week on April eighth and ninth.
