New Raconteurs Album Next Week

A few days ago, I was reading a post on a message board I sometimes frequent from a person who works at a record store claiming there was a new Raconteurs album coming out today. No one really believed it, but then again with the way rather large artists have been dropping things out of the sky these days (Radiohead, NIN, etc.,) maybe Jack White had a trick up his sleeve. Did he really have the band finish their new album, go to Warner Bros., and demand it be released ASAP? Yes. Yes he did.

And with that, Jack White's other band will release their sophomore album, Consolers Of The Lonely, next Tuesday.
What's special about this compared to the NIN and Radiohead releases, though, is that this isn't just a digital release, it's a normal release: it will be out via CD, vinyl, and as a digital download via iTunes from your friends at Third Man/Warner Bros. Wow. Mighty impressive I must say, now we just have to wait and see how impressive the record is when it lands.

Until then, there's always Pee Wee's cameo in this video:
