The Raconteurs, Jack White’s band with Brendan Benson and the Greenhornes’ Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, are finally coming back. They’ve shared two new songs off their still untitled album, and now they’ve teased a third.

In a series of Instagram posts, the band showed off their process for mixing the new album. Jack White explains how they use “pirate radio”, his Tesla and a good ol’ pair of walkie-talkies to make the magic happen.

Jack White shows us a technique he developed for doing master mixes. The Raconteurs are mixing their new album with Vance Powell at Sputnik Sound. One of their new songs “Shine The Light On Me" is broadcast with an FM transmitter from inside the studio. Outside in the car park, the band listens to the broadcast on an unused FM frequency. ( the broadcaster only sends a small powered signal about a distance of a hundred feet or so ) The band uses a walkie talkie to give notes on the mix to the engineer ( Vance ) back in the control room. This way the artist can mix in real time, and hear exactly what the song sounds like on the radio as well, this time through the amazing sound system of a Tesla Model S. This speeds up the process of mixing greatly and reduces the amount of remixes that occur after artists feel they’ve “got it” in the studio, only to listen in the car on the ride home realizing that the kick drum is too loud! . . . #brendanbenson #jacklawrence #jackwhite #patrickkeeler #theraconteurs #newalbum #mixing @vancalot
