Akron rockers The Black Keys have hit the studio to start work on their new album, and drop a new video clip.
The Black Keys’ El Camino has been quite the revelation – the mainstream capitalisation on their breakthrough Brothers album – so their next platter is certainly highly anticipated.
Now guitarist Dan Auerbach has revealed to Rolling Stone that they’ve already spent a week in the studio in July between tour dates.
He said that it wasn’t “the most focused studio session” but they did “get some ideas down and started the ball rolling.”
Don’t hold your breath just yet, Black Keys fans. Drummer Pat Carney said “We might not finish it until March since we have to tour so much, but we’ll see. After July, we’ll be able to know how long it’ll take.”
So, basically no new album until mid-2013, at least. In the meantime, check out the official clip for their new single ‘Little Black Submarines’.
