In December 2018 The Raconteurs made their long-awaited return, dropping two songs and their first new music in over 10 years. Sunday Driver comes with a video directed by acclaimed photographer, filmmaker, inventor Steven Sebring. Now That You’re Gone is captured by Beyoncé and Jay Z director Dikayl Rimmasch, its video featuring burlesque performer Gia Genevieve. Both tracks are out now via Third Man Records.
Making their debut with the rollicking 2006 single Steady, As She Goes, The Raconteurs’ debut album, Broken Boy Soldiers, entered the UK charts at #2, #7 in the US and #12 in NZ. Off the back of singles such as Broken Boy Soldier and Hands, Mojo chose the record as their ‘Album of the Year’.
2008’s Consolers of the Lonely featured another kick-ass single, Salute Your Solution, and earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album. Just last month the band celebrated the record’s 10-year anniversary, announcing a special reissue package via the Third Man Vault subscription series.
