It’s been a crazy few months for Jack White, or should we say Dr. Jack White, but his focus is now back on music as The Raconteurs have shared the latest track from their long-awaited new album. Listen to the new song ‘Help Me Stranger’.
Billed as a sort of title track to the band’s first album in 11 years, featuring Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler, the new song ‘Help Me Stranger’ is a huge foot-stomper.
It is set to appear on the band’s new album Help Us Stranger, which will be their first album in over a decade, and is due out June 21st via Third Man. Below, you can find the video, which was directed by Yasuhiko Shimizu.
The Raconteurs have previously shared the Help Us Stranger tracks ‘Sunday Driver,’ ‘Now That You’re Gone,’ and ‘Hey Gyp (Dig the Slowness).’
