The Raconteurs Share Full Details of Comeback Album, Due This Summer

The Raconteurs have announced their new album Help Us Stranger, due out June 21 on Third Man Records, owned by Jack White, and marks the supergroup’s third release and first new full-length album since 2008. The band, which features White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler has already released the singles ‘Sunday Driver’ and ‘Now That You’re Gone’ in December. All the songs on the record are White and Benson originals, except for the Donovan cover ‘Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness).’ The album will also be released via Third Man’s subscription series as a Vault package. The bundle features a limited edition electric green/black/copper swirled vinyl LP, a 7″ of demo versions of two songs from the album, a bandana, a custom vinyl slipcover, and more. The band returned to the stage this past weekend at Third Man Records’ 10 Year Anniversary party.
