Late last year, we got the impression The Raconteurs were up to something when the Jack White- and Brendan Benson-led supergroup shared a pair of new songs alongside a vinyl re-issue of their most recent LP, 2008's Consolers of the Lonely. Full details of the rock band's third full length arrived today (April 2).
Help Us Stranger arrives June 21 on White's Third Man Records. It was self-produced by the band (which also includes bassist Jack Lawrence and drummer Patrick Keeler) and features collaborations from Dead Weather multi-instrumentalist Dean Fertita, Third Man artist Lillie Mae Rische, and her sister, Scarlett Rische. Naturally, it was recorded at Third Man Studios in Nashville.
Also of note: the Raconteurs' first show in eight years is set for this Saturday (April 6) at Third Man's 10th anniversary party in Nashville.
