On last night's Conan, Jack White performed two new tracks and discussed his newly released album, his relevance in sport arenas, and his proudest moment at his own Third Man Records thus far. We saw Jack's relaxed, humorous side as Conan conducted the interview with his standard wit. Watch both live performances and the interviews below.

JACK WHITE & CONAN INTERVIEW PART TWO 6.11.2014
White performed "Temporary Ground" and "Alone in My Home," both among the softer, folk-country tunes off the new album. Shot with a selectively black-and-white filter, White delivered a solid performance with his band on a stage neatly furnished like an old-fashioned living room. His vocals are smooth, especially when paired with the lovely Lillie Mae Rische at his side.
In the first interview segment, Conan shared his excitement upon hearing "Seven Nation Army" alongside Jack at a Dodger game ("It's so cool to sit next to the guy who wrote it"), as well as a reviewer comment that White "play[s] rock and roll from the crotch." White talks about Jesus, The Beatles, and Albert Einstein.
White went on to express his disdain for not living "in the moment" at live shows, and his surprise at fans' cooperating with his request to refrain from filming during his concerts. Attempting to get people back into vinyl, he talks about the deluxe version of his new LP that features an angel hologram.
