Yes, it's true! Our silent prayers have been answered and The Raconteurs will release a brand new album on Tuesday, March 25 called Consolers of the Lonely!
Apparently Jack White didn't want anyone to get a hold of the new tracks and leak them to the internet, thus the sped up announcement/release date, and I'm all for that. What a fantastic surprise!
There's even going to be a YouTube video for the first single, 'Salute Your Solution' on the 25th. I am loving this!
