The Raconteurs (also known as The Saboteurs in Australia) is an American rock band that was formed in Detroit, Michigan, featuring four members known for other musical projects: Jack White (of The White Stripes and The Dead Weather), Brendan Benson (solo), Jack Lawrence (of The Greenhornes, Blanche and The Dead Weather), and Patrick Keeler (also of The Greenhornes). They collaborated with Adele on their single "Many Shades of Black" (which was included both on their album Consolers of the Lonely and the deluxe edition of her debut album, 19). Adele also performed a live cover of their song "Steady, As She Goes."

According to Adele, Jack White (a member of The Raconteurs) was almost one of the producers on her sophomore release, 21:

We were doing a lot of collaborations after 'Many Shades of Black.' We were going to get together in Detroit after the 2009 Grammys and finish some tracks and then it never happened. It'll happen at some point. I definitely want to follow it up. [1]
