The Third Men Podcast is excited to present an all-new extended interview with the one, the only Mr. Brendan Benson! For over two decades Brendan has been a fixture of the power pop world, with a myriad of critically acclaimed and commercially successful musical releases including a staggering seven solo studio albums. Brendan’s latest LP, Dear Life, is out now on Third Man Records and the well-fed boy himself was kind enough to sit down with your humble co-hosts to review the new album, wax poetic and take a tour through some highlights of his storied career. Of course, TMR fans know Brendan for his work as a member of The Raconteurs, the rock’n’roll tour de force that he, Jack White, Patrick Keeler and Little Jack Lawrence formed in 2005. The band’s latest release Help Us Stranger climbed to the #1 spot on the US Billboard Top 200 last summer and solidified their status as one of the rock world’s most vital enterprises. All of that said, we here at the Third Men Podcast are HUGE fans of Brendan’s work, and are beyond thrilled he agreed to join us here on the show today. So thanks to Mr. Benson for the great conversation, and thanks to all of you for taking a listen. Hope you enjoy this discussion as much as we enjoyed recording it!
