Following 2008’s Consolers Of The Lonely, Help Us Stranger will be the beloved rock band’s first studio album in over a decade. The Raconteurs’ Jack White and Brendan Benson wrote 11 of the 12 songs on the album, which includes a cover of the Donovan song “Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness).”

Third Man Records will also release a special edition of Help Us Stranger as part of its “Vault” series. Vault Package #40 will include a limited color vinyl edition of the album, as well as a limited edition 7″, Raconteurs bandana and matching slip mat.
