The Black Keys have announced a new album, ‘Dropout Boogie’.
The news comes alongside the first single from the record, ‘Wild Child’, plus a Bryan Schlam-directed video.
“Living in Nashville and making records here has opened both of our minds to that experience a little bit more,” Dan Auerbach says. “I knew Pat would love working with both of these guys [Cartwright and Petraglia], so we decided we’d give it a shot. It was the first time we’d ever really done that. It was fun as hell. We just sat around a table with acoustic guitars and worked out a song ahead of time.”
Patrick Carney adds: “The cool thing with Greg is that he wants to approach stuff with a story in mind – there’s a plot, almost.”
‘Dropout Boogie’ is set for release on 13th May. You can check out ‘Wild Child’ below.
