In Topic: New album, HELP US STRANGER

Ive thoroughly enjoyed all 5 songs weve so far heard both released (Sunday driver, NOw that youre gone) and played live (bored and raised, help me stranger, the Donovan cover).

Bored and raised definitely sounds like a song theyll open shows with.
Help me stranger has a groovy hook and gets stuck in your head, reminds me of a lot of 1970s singer songwriter stuff.
The Donovan cover is groovy just because they took it and made it those old school fun roadhouse rocker. I like.

I wonder why the album's being released so late, I mean they're gonna be touring here in a few weeks... maybe they're still mixing?

Imagine some of it is wanting it to be the Q2 vault release - yeah they could have done it as a stand-alone, but consistent policy for jack the last few years is if he has a new album it gets on the vault release schedule. Plus mixing and mastering and cutting to vinyl takes a minute and they finished the album mid-March so it all kind of makes sense to me.

In Topic: Why haven't the Raconteurs reformed?

First week or two of April we will know what the next vault package is.....assuming it is the new racs album, expect that to be it. Imagine they announcement will come with a first single which would be our 3rd song from the album released (singles from December 18 theyve already said will be on the album).

In Topic: Raconteurs tour 2019

If not now, maybe in another leg later this year? This is starting out feeling like the BHR tour, which was announced in dribs and drabs around the festival schedule and hopped around a lot.

Gonna guess its all based on when the album is released....would guess the album is out in June which would mean I imagine they wanna be in the states to do promo around then. That way they can go from Australia to Europe, do these euro shows and do European promo (some cases prerecord stuff) then be back in America for album release. Launch US tour in June/July/ August and imagine theyre back in Europe late fall around November for a proper tour.

Those are just my wild ass based on nothing guesses that seem logical in my head. Otherwise why go to Europe to only do 4 shows unless theres more stuff youre doing whilst over there.
