The Raconteurs' "Help Us Stranger" Debuts at No. One

Image

The acclaimed third studio album from The Raconteurs has debuted at #1 on this week's SoundScan/Billboard 200.


Help Us Stranger, the acclaimed third studio album from The Raconteurs – Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler – has debuted at #1 on this week's SoundScan/Billboard 200 -- the band's first-ever #1 and their third trip to the top 10. The album also sits on top of the physical albums chart, as well as the vinyl chart. In fact, HELP US STRANGER garnered the sixth highest first-week vinyl sales in the SoundScan era (with Jack White holding the #1 and #4 spots for Lazaretto and Boarding House Reach, respectively). The album is the first #1 for an independent record company in 2019, and is the fourth consecutive Billboard #1 for Jack White as an artist. In addition to its chart-topping achievements here in the United States, the album has also debuted at #1 on the album sales chart in Canada and #2 on the overall Canadian album chart. The success continues in the UK where the album took the top spot on the UK vinyl chart, along with being the #3 independent album and #8 on the Official UK Albums chart.

Continuing the celebration, The Raconteurs took to the streets in both New York City and Los Angeles last week – playing special in-store performances at Rough Trade NYC and Generation Records in the West Village, as well as Amoeba Music Hollywood.
