The Raconteurs have officially announced that their new album, which is called Help Us Stranger, will be out on 21st June via Third Man Records. It’s their first full-length since 2008’s Consolers Of The Lonely.
We’ve known that the band — whose members include Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler — was working on an album for a while now. They released two new tracks back in December, “Sunday Driver” and “Now That You’re Gone,” and they recently announced their first show together in 8 years, which will take place later this week at Third Man Records’ 10th anniversary party in Nashville. White also bragged last month about mixing a Raconteurs song from his Tesla.
The album was recorded at Third Man Studios, naturally, and was self-produced by the band. Collaborators include Dean Fertita (The Dead Weather, Queens of the Stone Age), Lillie Mae Rische, and Scarlett Rische. It features all new songs, plus a cover of Donovan’s “Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness).”
