Fresh off releasing their first studio material in 11 years, The Raconteurs returned to late-night television to perform “Somedays (I Don’t Feel Like Trying)” and “Don’t Bother Me” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night.
“Somedays (I Don’t Feel Like Trying)” finds vocalist Brendan Benson leading the foursome through the alt-country, organ-led track with an acoustic guitar and added keyboardist to his left. “Don’t Bother Me” is clearly the more energetic and louder of the two—it calls for three separate electric guitars, after all, one of which is thrown around by guitarist extraordinaire Jack White.
The Raconteurs are in the midst of their North American headlining tour in support of their comeback release Help Us Stranger. You can revisit the band’s dates here.
Check out the two performances below.
