The Raconteurs are releasing a special 3-inch single for Record Store Day

Not a bad collectible from the now-active four-piece

The Raconteurs have announced that they will be releasing a special 3-inch single for Record Store Day 2019.

The four-piece recently returned to action by releasing two new songs, ‘Sunday Driver’ and ‘Now That You’re Gone’. Those two tracks are set to feature on the group’s long-awaited third album, which is due sometime this year.

The latest development from The Raconteurs is that they are now planning to release a special vinyl single for this year’s Record Store Day. The band’s ‘Store Bought Bones’ will be pressed onto an exclusive 3-inch single for the occasion, which is set to fall this year on April 13.

The official Record Store Day Facebook page made the announcement on Wednesday (January 9), with fans spotting that the tiny vinyl in question had the words ‘The Raconteurs – Store Bought Bones’ pressed in the middle.

The record player pictured is a special Crosley turntable which is capable of playing records of this size. The caption also notes that record collectors should expect a number of other 3-inch singles to be specially released for Record Store Day 2019.

Back in 2005, Jack White‘s The White Stripes sold a limited-edition mini record player that was compatible with a series of 3-inch singles of the likes of ‘Seven Nation Army’ and ‘Hotel Yorba’.

Last month, The Raconteurs’ Brendan Benson confirmed that the band would be hitting the road extensively in 2019.
