As promised, The Raconteurs have shared two new songs (and accompanying music videos), “Sunday Driver” and “Now That You’re Gone,” off their as-of-yet-unnamed forthcoming album, due out in 2019 through Jack White’s Third Man Records.
The songs mark the first new music from the band in over a decade. Their last album, Consolers of the Lonely, came out in 2008. New music from the band was first teased back in October by Third Man, and today’s new tracks were previously made available in physical form to subscribers of the label’s Vault series as part of a special edition anniversary re-release of Consolers. You can find everything we know about the band’s new album so far right here.
“We’re knee deep in the trenches of our first new album in a decade,” White is quoted as telling Mojo Magazine in a press release. “We have a vast amount of genre-pushing songs that bridge the gap between Detroit and Nashville rock and roll. The album sounds like a World War. It’s great to be co-writing songs with Brendan Benson again, the man is a song craftsman.”
