The video, directed by Yasuhiko Shimizu, finds Jack White, Brendan Benson and company performing the track in the studio and posing for what appears to be promotional photos. A strange subplot sees White finding an abandoned baby in front of a shuttered store in Kitmitsu, Japan – the Raconteurs filmed the video last month while touring Japan – and Benson making telephone calls in a green-lit room.
The Raconteurs previously shared their cover of Donovan’s “Hey Gyp (Dig the Slowness)” from Help Us Stranger, their first LP since 2008’s Consolers of the Lonely, and debuted a few new album tracks, including “Help Me Stranger” at the Third Man 10th anniversary celebration.
The band have also announced a special independent record store edition of Help Us Stranger complete with an exclusive white vinyl, an alternate cover and hand screen printed LP jacket, “as well as a limited quantity of strictly promotional, never-available-for-sale 7-inch test pressings of ‘Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness).'” The Raconteurs previously announced a massive Third Man Vault edition of the LP, which is due out June 21st.
