The Black Keys are from Akron, Ohio & formed in 2001.
This track will be featured on their forthcoming album: “Delta Kream,” which is set to drop on May 14th. The new album celebrates the band’s blues roots and is a celebration of their early inspiration. The music on the album hails from Mississippi juke joints and has long left an imprint on the band’s music.
Of the new album, vocalist & guitarist Dan Auerbach says:
“We made this record to honor the Mississippi hill country blues tradition that influenced us starting out. These songs are still as important to us today as they were the first day Pat and I started playing together and picked up our instruments. It was a very inspiring session with Pat and me, along with Kenny Brown and Eric Deaton, in a circle, playing these songs. It felt so natural.”
Drummer Pat Carney adds:
“The session was planned only days in advance and nothing was rehearsed. We recorded the entire album in about 10 hours, over two afternoons at the end of the Let’s Rock tour.”
