The Raconteurs, the band staffed by the White Stripes' Jack White, Brendan Benson and the Greenhornes' Patrick Keeler and Jack Lawrence, will release their debut single, "Steady, As She Goes" b/w "Store Bought Bones" on 7-inch vinyl March 7 in North America via Third Man/V2.

The band's newly launched Web site, modeled on the interface of an early Apple computer, is streaming the audio for both tracks on the single, which was released last week in the United Kingdom.

In May, the Raconteurs will bring forth their first album, "Broken Boy Soldiers." Tour dates are expected to be announced shortly.

"It's something totally new for me -- two songwriters working together," White told Billboard of the new band last summer. "Dual vocals, dual lead guitars, dual songwriting duties. It's not just me and Brendan; Patrick and Jack are very talented musicians. The songs are giant. They're really large."

As for the White Stripes, the group just completed its stint on the Big Day Out festival tour of Australia and New Zealand and will return to Asia in early March for four shows in Japan.
