Yesterday The Black Keys announced their new album, Turn Blue. The album, which is produced by both the band and Danger Mouse, got its name (according to a press release by the band) from "A: Suffocation, B: Sadness, C: Numbness from extreme cold, D: A Cleveland late night TV host from the 1960s named Ghoulardi, or E: All of the above." In addition to announcing the new album, the band gave us the first single, Fever, which shows us the band's newest tweak to their sound unique sound. The song features 80s keyboards, and walking bass line, and lots of falsetto. This is a new turn for the band but still holds on to the rock 'n' roll roots that have persisted throughout the band's albums. I dig it.
Turn Blue is due out May 13th via Nonesuch Records. Pre-order your copy here
