The Raconteurs announce new album “Help Us Stranger”

The Raconteurs – Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler are back with their third studio album,” Help Us Stranger”. It’s been about a decade since the group has released any new material under the Raconteurs name. White has been bust with Third Man records and solo work, so it’s very very exciting to see the band back together again. The hybrid sound of the band collecting blues, rock, funk, pieces of psychedelia and soul, it’s feeling as if this record will push this band to limits  of new innovating sound  with all the time that have had and the perfectionist that White it’s going to be something special. The band has returned just in time for the festival circuit and loud blasting of the record with out of vehicle windows. Along with 11 original tracks, the album includes a cover of Donovan’s “Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness)”.

Below is the track list and the dates for the world tour already announced.
