The Black Keys – “Turn Blue”

By Tom Breihan / April 14, 2014 - 11:44 am

Next month, triumphant arena-blooz stars the Black Keys return with their new album Turn Blue, which band members Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney co-produced with Danger Mouse. (If that new U2 album also comes out this year, this will probably mean Danger Mouse is 2014’s biggest rock producer, which is a weird turn for the world to take.) Earlier today, Carney played the album’s title track on his SiriusXM show Serious Boredom, and like first single “Fever,” it’s a tense and precise midtempo song, one that’s been sculpted with laserlike focus. Check it out below.

Turn Blue is out 5/13 on Nonesuch.
