Sporting their own memorable sound and a little something more, Jack White and his band-mates have staged their return with their newest album release, Help Us Stranger.
After an 11-year hiatus, The Raconteurs have suddenly released a brand new rock album. The band’s official site has chronicled the album’s drip fed release since February of this year.
The release of their new music video for the album’s near-titular track “Help Me Stranger” came in May, drumming up interest for the full album release to follow on the 21st of June.
The band took to a televised stage to get the message out about the album, performing on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert a day before its release.

Confirmation of a supporting tour was also made on the band’s official website, stating the North American leg was already planned to begin in Aspen, Colorado.
The album itself was released by Third Man Records and features 12 new songs including those that were drip-released ahead of time. This Raconteurs release blends bold rock vibes with stony country tones for an overall familiar experience.
