After a decade of silence from the Jack White and Brendan Benson led supergroup, the 10th-anniversary of The Raconteurs' last record has brought with it the exciting news that the band will be releasing a third studio album.
And it won't be too long until we are treated to a glimpse of what's to come. Two of the tracks that will be featured on the upcoming album will be included in a special 10-year anniversary edition of Consolers of the Lonely, which will be available in the next Vault package.
The long-awaited news was broken today on the official Third Man Records website, where the following statement was made in a press release regarding the anniversary LP:
For our 7" for this package, we have something very special: the first NEW songs in ten years from recent sessions that will ultimately result in a new Raconteurs album in 2019!! That's right, we're not giving you track titles or even letting your hear a snippet. You'll have to wait until this package hits your doorstep. The time for you all to get pretty dang excited about what is to come next year begins right... NOW!
