Black Keys streaming new LP “Let’s Rock”
The Black Keys' first album in five years, "Let's Rock," comes out tomorrow (6/28) via Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch, and the whole thing is streaming now at Black Keys fansite thelonelyboysandgirlsclub.com (you have to sign up/login to listen). The duo are touting the album as a return to their rawer-sounding earlier days, having tracked it live and produced it themselves. "We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to," drummer Patrick Carney said. Listen here.
The Black Keys are also touring with Modest Mouse, including Brooklyn's Barclays Center on October 15. They're also playing Las Vegas' Life Is Beautiful festival and they were the first band to drop off Woodstock 50 before all the drama.
