Both songs were made available digitally on December 19 and subsequently were included on the 2019 album Help Us Stranger.

Help Us Stranger was released on June 21, 2019. It is is the third studio album by American rock band The Raconteurs. It is their first studio album in 11 years following Consolers of the Lonely (2008). The album was recorded at Third Man Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, and mixed at Blackbird Studios in Nashville.

The Raconteurs (/ˌrækɒnˈtɜːrz/, also known as The Saboteurs in Australia) is an American rock band from Detroit, Michigan, formed in 2005. The band consists of Jack White (vocals, guitar), Brendan Benson (vocals, guitar), Jack Lawrence (bass guitar), and Patrick Keeler (drums). Lawrence and Keeler were originally members of the Greenhornes, while White and Lawrence went on to become members of the Dead Weather.

If you call me I’ll come running
And you can call me anytime
These sixteen strings we’re strumming
They will back up every line, every line, every line

If you call me I’ll come running
And you can call me anytime
And these sixteen strings we’re strumming
They will back up every line

There’s a motivation about you
That moves me when we’re apart
It agitates my affection
And it wants to break my heart

Help me, stranger
Help me get it off my mind
Get me back on my feet
Brother, can you spare the time?
Help me, stranger
Help me get it off my mind
Get me back on my feet
Brother, can you spare the time?

It’s not essential that I feel you
But it’s a sensitive device
I’m reverential when I hear you
I genuflect to your advice

Well, I wish I had the words
And I want those words to rhyme
And I wish I had the nerve
‘Cause I sure don’t have the time

Help me, stranger
Help me get it off my mind
Get me back on my feet
Brother, can you spare the time?
Help me, stranger
Help me get it off my mind
Get me back on my feet
Brother, can you spare the time?

Brother can you spare the time?
Brother can you spare the time?
Brother can you spare the time?

Songwriters: Brendan Benson / Jack White

      Yes, it does. I’ve been a fan of Jack White since his White Stripe days. He’s an excellent guitarist.

    love white’s work, his collaborations etc. The doco “It Might get Loud” with Jimmy Page and the Edge was fascinating.
