Details about The Raconteurs‘ shock new release of ‘Consolers Of The Lonely’ were revealed before today’s (March 18) official announcement.

Rumours of Jack White and co’s rush release of their second album were unearthed by record shop employees posting on various official websites.

According to Rollingstone.com one employee wrote on Radiohead‘s Atease message board saying: “So I just went to the record shop where I work at, and my boss said that Jack White went into the Warner Bros office last Tuesday, handed them the master tape for the new Raconteurs and told them that he wanted the album out this Tuesday. So, lo and behold, we’re having copies over-nighted to us this Monday.”

Other posts explained that details of an album started appearing – the record suddenly started being added to shop release schedules, with one record store, CD World, even posting the release’s details and artwork.

As previously reported ‘Consolers Of The Lonely’ will be released next week (March 25).
