The Black Keys have announced a new album, “Let’s Rock”, and shared a new song from it, “Eagle Birds.” Let’s Rock is due out June 28th via Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch Records. Listen to “Eagle Birds” below. The album includes “Lo/Hi,” a song they shared back in March . It’s been five years since The Black Keys last released an album, 2014’s Turn Blue. A press release says Let’s Rock”is a return to the straightforward rock of the singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney’s early days as a band.” Auerbach adds: “When we’re together we are The Black Keys, that’s where that real magic is, and always has been since we were 16.”

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have kept busy in the last half a decade. In 2015 Auerbach released Yours, Dreamilythe debut album by side-project The Arcs, and in 2017 then he released his second solo album, Waiting on a Song. He also started a record label, Easy Eye Sound, named after his recording studio in Nashville, and recorded other artists at the studio. Carney also produced and collaborated with other artists, including Tennis and Tobias Jesso Jr., and recently released a debut album from his side band Sad Planets (which is a collaboration with John Petkovic).
