The Black Keys Announce Ninth Album 'Let's Rock'

Friday, 26 April 2019 Written by Helen Payne

The Black Keys have unveiled details of their ninth album.

‘Let’s Rock’ is due for release on June 28 via Easy Eye Sound/Nonsuch Records. Their first record for five years, it’s set to be a return to simple guitar rock, more like the early days of the band.

Vocalist and guitarist Dan Auerbach said:“When we’re together we are The Black Keys, that’s where that real magic is, and always has been since we were sixteen.” Patrick Carney added that “the record is like a homage to electric guitar. We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to.”

The second cut, Eagle Birds, follows on from the lead single Lo/Hi, and as expected, is a thriving piece of classic blues rock following the typical 12 bar structure, accompanied by archetypal backing vocals in the chorus. As the album’s title would suggest, they’re definitely rocking.

‘Let’s Rock’ tracklist:

1. Shine A Little Light
2. Eagle Birds
3. Lo/Hi
4. Walk Across The Water
5. Tell Me Lies
6. Every Little Thing
7. Get Yourself Together
8. Sit Around And Miss You
9. Go
10. Breaking Down
11. Under The Gun
12. Fire Walk With Me

The Black Keys will support ‘Let’s Rock’ on an extensive tour in the US throughout autumn, starting off in Las Vegas’s Life Is Beautiful Festival on September 21 and culminating with a show in Vancouver on November 24. Tickets are on sale now.

After five years of side projects and production work, the Black Keys reconvened at Dan Auerbach’s Nashville studio to lay down album number nine. In a return to the ways of old, ‘Let’s Rock’ found Auerbach and Patrick Carney building songs from scratch through riffing and jamming together, the chemistry of their reconnection driving them on after a lengthy hiatus following the Danger Mouse-produced ‘Turn Blue’ in 2014.
