Earlier in the fall, it was revealed that The Raconteurs were planning to release a new album in 2019, their first in over 10 years. While details on the long-awaited LP are still forthcoming, Jack White & co. are previewing it today with two new songs: “Sunday Driver” and “Now That You’re Gone”.
The first offering finds White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler electrified and swaggering, outfitted with cutting guitar licks. Meanwhile, the second tune takes on a more sobering tone with lyrics such as, “Never known such unhappiness.”
Stream both tracks below. Update: The Raconteurs have also shared videos for each track.
In addition to appearing on The Raconteurs’ upcoming album, “Sunday Driver” and “Now That You’re Gone” are included on the 10th anniversary reissue of the rock group’s 2008 record, Consolers of the Lonely.
This year saw White let loose a solid solo album in Boarding House Reach.
