After several previews and a return to the live stage, The Raconteurs have today released their new album Help Us Stranger on this latest New Music Friday. Check it out on Live4ever below.

The band’s first studio album since 2008’s Consolers Of The Lonely was officially confirmed back in April after initially being teased by Third Man last year.
