The Raconteurs are returning in June with their first album in 11 years, Help Us Stranger. As to be expected from the Jack White-led outfit, the lead-up to the new record has been nothing short of eventful. In just the last few days, they staged their live comeback at Third Man Records’ 10th anniversary concert in Nashville; offered up the debut of multiple new songs; and even announced a lengthy North American tour.
White & co. are continuing their hot streak today with their cover of “Hey Gyp (Dig the Slowness)”. While Donovan’s 1965 original carried its own dose of grit, The Raconteurs breathe pure fire into their rendition.
