The Raconteurs have announced today’s premiere of Amazon Original versions of “I’m Your Puppet” and “Now That You’re Gone,” recorded August 23, 2019 at Muscle Shoals, AL’s legendary FAME Studios and available now only on Amazon Music. Written by Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, “I’m Your Puppet” was made famous by James & Bobby Purify; the original version of “Now That You’re Gone” can be found on The Raconteurs’ acclaimed new album, HELP US STRANGER (Third Man Records). “I’m Your Puppet” and “Now That You’re Gone” are available to stream and purchase now, and fans can watch behind-the-scenes footage of the band recording and discussing the tracks HERE. The tracks are also available to stream on Amazon Music HD, a new premium tier quality streaming audio from Amazon Music.
