It truly does.
Which one: Goober and the Peas, the Go..?
...Jack White & the Bricks...
The best one, or course.
I DEFINITELY miss The Go!
Sounds to be good. I never cared much for Jack's other material but the Raconteurs have a good sound. I liked the first one but haven't really listened to number 2.
Second song definitely grows on you. Wasn't sure about it at first but a couple days later I couldn't get it out of my head.
Judging from the video, Jack's back to making music with the Raconteurs, correct? I first got into both of them with Consolers of the Lonely, which is just a superb album. Bring it on!
The Raconteurs Return With New 7" Single!
Howl on the Haunted Beat You Ride is a classic
Listening to "Sunday Driver" for a second time reminded me that rock is supposed to be fun. Jack's guitar work in "Now That You're Gone" is top flight. I didn't notice that so much the first time I listened.
Since these singles were released in a 7" fashion both on streaming services (Sunday Driver/Now That You're Gone) and physically in the third-man vault, does anyone think we'll get a wide-released 7"?
Loving these 2 new cuts, bodes very well for the new album.
Listening to the new Vault Consolers cements my view that it's my favourite album from White full stop, leaves his solo and DW albums standing in my view.
Maybe it's not the critical darling The White Stripes are but COTL is just so infectious, every track a pleasure, such a mish mash of styles but it all comes together brilliantly.
If they capture this vibe and bring something new to the table with the 3rd album we could be in for another cracker.
I can't see album 3 being a retread, not Jack's style and the 2 new songs show it's definitelty The Raconteurs but not going over old ground.
No - Third Man says the Vault 7” is the only physical release. Plus, it has the early mixes instead.
Hopefully they'll do somewhat of a tour. Jack has been doing so much solo stuff this will be a good change and challenge for him. Enjoy it because he will get bored with it after it's done and we won't hear them together for a long, long time.
Raconteurs are playing a side show in Melbourne on 18 April, got my ticket!
Very excited about this 2019 release!
Here's further news:

I wasn't sure, until I saw the bandana - pre-ordered.
For anyone else with a P.O. box shipping address, the last Vault package I ordered arrived days after other people received theirs. Third Man ship out P.O. box orders last so, if you want quicker delivery, use your post office's physical address if they provide that service (most do, just fill out the form).
When the single came out I immediately liked 'Now That You're Gone' but wasn't sure about 'Sunday Driver'. After listening to it over the past weeks, I don't really care for 'Sunday Driver'. Jack White's constant whooping makes it feel like he's trying to make an average song more exciting that it is.
My wife and I were able to secure tickets for the intimate Raconteurs show at the Third Man Blue Room here in Nashville last night, and the audience of 300 were treated to a full performance of the new album to start the show! Our phones were locked up so no video or photos, but the new material sounded very strong live, especially the first half. Very consistent with the first two albums, so if you liked them you will like this one. I enjoy most of Jack's material, but if we can't have the White Stripes I will take the Raconteurs over any of his other projects.
The concert was recorded to acetate and also filmed, so we can likely expect a future Vault release devoted to these shows (they are performing in the Blue Room again tonight).
New track. A Donovan cover! A nice tricky little beat to start out:
Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness), by The Raconteurs
Love that they've released this on bandcamp.
Song is super tight.
