More info about Help Us Stranger
Help Us Stranger is the Grammy Award-winning rock band’s third studio LP and first new album in more than a decade. The album sees the mighty combo reassembled, stronger and perhaps even more vital than ever before. They continue to push rock ‘n’ roll forward into its future, bonding prodigious riffs, blues power, sinewy psychedelia, Detroit funk, and Nashville soul via Benson and White’s uncompromising songcraft and the band’s steadfast musical muscle.
With Help Us Stranger, The Raconteurs have returned right when they are needed most. They are unified and invigorated with boundless ambition, infinite energy and a collectivist spirit operating at the peak of its considerable powers. It’s once again creating a sound and fury only possible when all four of its members come together.
