Fresh from confirming plans to headline Third Man Records’ 10th anniversary show, The Raconteurs have confirmed that they’ve now finished work on their new album.
The band - made up of Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler - have taken to Third Man Records’ Twitter to confirm the news, with their video message reading: “Just finished making the rock & roll album you’ve been waiting for…”
The record will be their first in over a decade, following on from 2008’s ‘Consolers of the Lonely’. It also follows on from their recently-released double A-side tracks ‘Sunday Driver’ and ‘Now That You’re Gone’, which lands back in December.
The Raconteurs are currently confirmed to play at this year’s Best Kept Secret, Heartland and All Points East festivals.
Check out their Twitter post confirming the news below.
