The Black Keys' new album El Camino will be released on December 2 via Nonesuch Records. Produced by Danger Mouse and The Black Keys, the 11-track album was recorded at singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound studio in the band's new hometown of Nashville during the spring of 2011.
The 1st single from the album, 'Lonely Boy', has recently been released to radio, and has received strong play on Triple J, the very funny video has also just been serviced to television.
El Camino follows the most successful two years in The Black Keys' career. In May 2010 they released their breakthrough album, Brothers, to widespread critical acclaim. Debuting at # 2 in the US, it went on to win three Grammy Awards and an MTV Video Music Award, and topped numerous year-end lists, including iTunes, NPR, and Rolling Stone. Brothers, which included the hit singles 'Tighten Up' and 'Howlin' for You', has been certified Gold in the US and UK, and Platinum in Canada. Worldwide sales are now over one million and counting.
Drummer Patrick Carney said of the band's recent success, 'We've taken the long road to get where we are. It's pretty cool to be in your early 30s making music with your best friend. We've experienced everything from driving a thousand miles to play for no one to winning Grammys.' Auerbach further describes the band's dynamic, 'We don't talk before we play. We don' practice before we record, we just fly by the seat of our pants.' He says of El Camino, 'I think where this record is going to shine for me is playing the songs live. This record is more straight ahead rock and roll 'raw, driving, and back to basics.'
