The Raconteurs share “Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness)” | New album available for pre-order

Fresh from announcing their new album HELP US STRANGER (out June 21 via Third Man Records) and their return to the stage after an eight-year absence, The Raconteurs – Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler – have shared their cover of Donovan’s “Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness)” — listen HERE.

All digital album pre-orders come with instant downloads of “Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness),” as well as previously released tracks “Sunday Driver” and “Now That You’re Gone.”

Tickets to The Raconteurs recently-announced North American headline tour dates are now on sale. These new dates, spanning from July to October, include previously-announced US festival appearances at Woodstock 50 and Railbird.

HELP US STRANGER (Third Man Records) 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 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. With HELP US STRANGER, The Raconteurs have returned right when they are needed most, unified and invigorated with boundless ambition, infinite energy and a collectivist spirit operating at the peak of its considerable powers, once again creating a sound and fury only possible when all four of its members come together.
