The Black Keys Talk New Album/ Upcoming Tour With Flaming Lips


The Black Keys are gearing up for their eighth studio album as their seventh LP, 2011’s “El Camino,” has a shot at an Album of the Year Grammy next month. The duo plans to hit the studio this month, and have offered a quartet of tour dates alongside psych-rock maestros theFlaming Lips in the meantime. “We’re going to start making the new album in the second week of January and we’re hoping to have it done by some time in March,” frontman Dan Auerbach tells Mojo (via NME). “Then we have a couple of weeks of touring, then we’re going to take the summer off, which we haven’t done for a while. The record isn’t written yet, we’ll do it when we get into the studio. This is when we both work best, when we’re dying to make an album. All of our records take place in the studio, in that we make stuff up while we’re there.”
