The rock supergroup - which features Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler - have confirmed via a short video that their long-awaited new album has just been completed.

The group also released a statement, saying: "Just finished making the rock & roll album you've been waiting for."

The Raconteurs released their debut studio album, 'Broken Boy Soldiers', in 2006 and have not released a new record since 2008's 'Consolers of the Lonely'.

Meanwhile, Jack previously revealed he considers it an artist's responsibility to "show something that no one else is doing".

The 43-year-old star - who is best known for his work with The White Stripes - explained his outlook while discussing the rise of digital music.

He shared: "If it was 1999 and I was asked: 'What do you think about digital music?', it was my job to say: 'Is that what everyone else is doing? Then I don't like it.'

"If the world had been into analogue, I would've said I loved digital. As an artist it is your job not to take the easy way out. I want to be turned on when I listen to an artist speak: I want them to show something that no one else is doing."
