Interview with Jack White on new Raconteurs, cell phones, and getting bumped 9 times on Letterman

The Raconteurs third album and first in eleven years, Help Us Stranger, is out today. The reviews have been mostly positive if you’re nostalgic for a good old fashion rip-roaring rock & roll album.

Jack White took 15 minutes to call call into CFOX before The Raconteurs were about to hit the stage in New York to perform on The Late Show.

We talk about the new Raconteurs album, Help Us Stranger, if he really doesn’t have a cell (he doesn’t, but assistants do, and he has an iPad, laptop) and he talks about the first time the White Stripes played Letterman…the same stage they are playing tonight…and getting bumped NINE times before finally ripping into “Fell In Love With A Girl.”
