A few days ago country star Ashley Monroe performed a very special show at Jack White’s Third Man Records—the set was recorded live, and many of the songs will be on her forthcoming album, The Blade, due July 24.
“It’s very crucial we get this right, obviously,” Monroe said to the crowd, according to Rolling Stone.
Once she rehearsed a song to get her levels right, Monroe launched into her set. It was recorded live, mixed in real-time and cut to acetate.
Once she’d played five songs Monroe took a break so that recording technicians could replace the acetate for the second side of the LP.
