Thursday night The Raconteurs went from mellow to raucous as they performed two new songs from Help Us Stranger, ““Somedays (I Don’t Feel Like Trying)” and “Don’t Bother Me” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The album, which released in June, was the 11-year follow-up to Consolers of the Lonely. Jack White previously told Rolling Stone there wasn’t a specific direction or intention for the recent album.
“We just thought, ‘Let’s just get together and we’ll work out a song, maybe a couple, and see what happens,'” White said. “And everyone was just so energetic, it was really inspiring. I mean, we had like 30 songs we were working on intensely and we ended up having to say, ‘Look, we got to settle on a dozen songs here.'”
