The Black Keys - "Weight Of Love" video

The Black Keys’ video for their seven-minute Turn Blue power ballad “Weight Of Love” begins the same way their “Fever” video ended: With a grainy televised image of frontman Dan Auerbach as a sweaty evangelical preacher. And even though Auerbach is only barely in the new video, it seems to be about a cult of young women who serve as his acolytes. The clip follows these frequently-topless white-clad ladies — supermodel Lara Stone chief among them — as they indulge in culty activities like group exercises and prayer circles. In its own way, the video itself is as horny as anything that would’ve aired on BET Uncut back in the day, but it seems to aspire to deeper things. Rolling Stone family scion Theo Wenner directed the video, just as he did with “Fever.” Watch it below.

Turn Blue is out now on Nonesuch.

  1. NSFW because their new album blows and your boss may think less of you for watching this video.

  2. The video is alright. Mostly it just reminds me how so many songs on this album could’ve been really great if they would’ve gotten the right producer. The chorus just reeks of Danger Mouse and the drums would be so much better if they sounded like they’re getting the piss beaten out of them like Jared Leto in Fight Club.

  3. This song is a musical orgasm. Wonderful. The best I’ve heard in a long time and the video is still better, a true work of art. The Black Keys definitely one of my favorite bands.

  4. Pink floyd- Breathe
