Broken Boy Soldier is the title track and the third single to be released from the album Broken Boy Soldiers by The Raconteurs, on October 23, 2006 in the UK. Jack White (from Uncut magazine): I guess it was about breaking out, like it’s time for everybody to grow up, kind of thing. There’s a feeling when all your friends are musicians and nobody has a real job, you wonder how long this is going to last and how long it’s going to be before people start – not getting a real job necessarily, but treating people with respect and acting more responsibly
Though it's fair to call them a side project (the album was recorded at Benson's studio whenever time came free) or even a supergroup, the resulting album is anything but an easily dismissed toss-off, though much of its charm rests in its unfussy naturalness. Most importantly, the songwriting for this project is predominately first-rate

The Raconteurs are a new band made up of old friends, consisting of Jack Lawrence, Patrick Keeler, Brendan Benson and Jack White. The seed was sewn in an attic in the middle of a hot summer when friends Jack White and Brendan Benson got together and wrote a song that truly inspired them. The inspiration led to a creation of a full band with the addition of Lawrence and Keeler. It's a great album but my copy arrived with track 1 side 2 damaged with some kind of white substance stuck in the grooves and the top of the album cover was ripped.
As The White Stripes are coming to a close, Jack has a backup band. The Raconteurs are pretty much similar in sound to the Whites, but they present enough fresh ideas and lyrics that "Broken Boy Soldiers" feels like its own thing.
