Pitchfork: “The Black Keys can still resemble the same dudes from Akron
who found their calling 20 years ago by tuning out the world and getting lost
in their own greasy groove. Only now, they don’t have to settle for merely
conjuring the spirit of their blues-rock idols—they can actually invite them
to their studio.”

New striking strokes

11 March 2022

Band: THE BLACK KEYS (Akron, Ohio)
Who: Best known blues-rock duo in the world
Active: Since 2001 / 12 LPs (new one included)

New album: DROPOUT BOOGIE
Out: 13 May 2022 – order info here

Info: “As they’ve done their entire career, The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney wrote all of the material for their new album, Dropout Boogie, in the studio, and the album captures a number of first takes that hark back to the stripped-down blues rock of their early days making music together in Akron, Ohio, basements. After hashing out initial ideas at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, the duo welcomed new collaborators Billy F. Gibbons, Greg Cartwright, and Angelo Petraglia to the sessions, marking the first time they’ve invited multiple new contributors to work simultaneously on one of their own albums.”

Lead single: WILD CHILD

The blues tandem looks like a pair of stand-up comedians on the new album cover. It’s true, they never saw themselves as rock ‘n roll innovators. They just wanna have fun (and make a copious living out of it). Wild Child just confirms all that. It’s Black Keys by numbers. A bit too much of the same, if you ask me.

Press play…
