The Raconteurs – Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler – have announced the release of their long-awaited new album, HELP US STRANGER (Third Man Records), which is the GRAMMY® Award-winning rock band’s third studio LP and first new album in more than a decade. Out on Friday, June 21, HELP US STRANGER sees the mighty combo reassembled, stronger and perhaps even more vital than ever before as they continue to push rock ‘n’ roll forward into its future, bonding prodigious riffs, blues power, sinewy psychedelia, Detroit funk, and Nashville soul via Benson and White’s uncompromising songcraft and the band’s steadfast musical muscle.

To coincide with the release, The Raconteurs and Third Man Records have revealed a special HELP US STRANGER-themed Vault Package #40 that features a limited edition electric green/black/copper swirled vinyl LP. Pressed at Third Man Pressing in the Cass Corridor of Detroit, the 180-gram marble vinyl edition also features exclusive Vault-only moving image lenticular cover art. The companion 7-inch single will feature early demo recordings of two songs from the new album – “Help Me Stranger” and “Somedays (I Don’t Feel Like Trying.” A Patrick Keeler-designed Raconteurs bandana and an exclusive Raconteurs slip mat are included in the package as well. Additionally, Vault members will receive first pre-sale ticket access to more soon to be announced Raconteurs headline shows. Third Man Vault subscriptions are open now through April 30. All HELP US STRANGER Vault packages will ship to arrive on or close to the album’s street date.
