JACK WHITE AND BRENDAN BENSON NAME SIDE PROJECT
Brendan Benson and JACK WHITE have named the side project they’ve been working on together.


As revealed by NME.COM the pair have made Detroit’s “answer to ‘Nevermind’” and are now calling Raconteurs.


“We’ll probably be coming out with a new record next year,” White told Billboard. “We’re almost done with it. It’s something totally new for me – two songwriters working together. Dual vocals, dual lead guitars, dual songwriting duties.”


White added that it wasn’t just him and Brendan Benson creating the record, they now had a full band featuring Jack Lawrence on bass and Patrick Keller drummer.


“It’s a brand new band,” declared White. “It’s not just me and Brendan Benson. Patrick and Jack are very talented musicians. The songs are giant. They’re really large.”


No release date has been set for the Raconteurs’ album, however nothing is expected until White finishes promotional duties for the new White Stripes album ‘Get Behind Me Satan’.
