Black and blues never felt so good.
On Monday, April 14, the band posted an audio version of "Turn Blue," on their YouTube page. Complete with groovy psychedelic beats and 60's inspired swirls, it is a smooth transition from their last platinum album, 2011's El Camino.
Earlier in March, Dan Auerbach (vocals/guitar) and Patrick Carney (drums) teased their fans with the release of “Fever,” their first hypnotic track and a tune less dark than “Turn Blue.”
Turn Blue is a collaborative production between Auerbach, Carney and Danger Mouse, who co – produced the Black Keys’ last three albums.
“We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a record—not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either," Carney said in a statement. “On this record, we let the songs breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds. We’re excited for the world to hear Turn Blue.”
Turn Blue can be pre ordered through the bands site and is set for release, May 13.
