The Black Keys are returning to their roots with a new blues covers album titled “Delta Kream”, out May 14th via Nonesuch Records. Auerbach and Carney’s interpretation of John Lee Hooker’s ‘Crawling Kingsnake’ is now available to stream by signing up to The Black Keys’ online fan club here. Teasing their new project, the pair tweeted a link to the old version of the song last week 

The announcement (via Reddit) was made through the band’s Lonely Boys & Girls fan club. The 11-track collection honours Mississippi Hill Country blues artists who inspired The Black Keys, including John Lee Hooker, R. L. Burnside, and David “Junior” Kimbrough

The lead single, “Crawling Kingsnake”, is a John Lee Hooker cover. It is currently available as a fan club exclusive and will hit streaming services on Thursday. Delta Kream marks The Black Keys’ follow-up to 2019’s “Let’s Rock”. Earlier this year, they released a 10th anniversary deluxe edition of “Brothers”. The Black Keys marked the 10th anniversary of their acclaimed sixth album ‘Brothers’ with a special deluxe edition in January. Originally released in 2010, the LP contains the songs ‘Next Girl’, ‘Howlin’ For You’, ‘Everlasting Light’ and ‘Tighten Up’.

The Black Keys are an American rock band formed in Akron, Ohio, in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (guitar, vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums). The duo began as an independent act, recording music in basements and self-producing their records, before they eventually emerged as one of the most popular garage rock artists during a second wave of the genre’s revival in the 2010s. The band’s raw blues rock sound draws heavily from Auerbach’s blues influences,
