Despite the fact that the eighth album by the Black Keys, “Turn Blue,” is to be released on May 13, Apple's iTunes Radio kicks in with the band's early-album listening on “First Play.” With “First Play,” Apple offers free-streaming of pre-release albums from artists like Lilly Allen, Drake, and Katy Perry.
Co-produced by Danger Mouse,“Turn Blue” contains 11 tracks, and it's the Black Keys' first full-length edition since their last album El Camino, from 2011. The band's lead vocalist, Dan Auerbach, says that the reason the band took so long to produce another full-length album was that they had been "this-is-your-brain-on-drugs fried." Upon writing “Weight of Love,” they decided not to release singles anymore, but to move further down the path of writing and make a "headphone record."
Before the release of “Turn Blue,” or its pre-release streaming, the Black Keys have introduced some of the album's singles. In April, the band shared their album's title track, which features a hypnotic psychedelic sound, with an airy electric guitar line, while a few days ago they debuted “A Bullet in the Brain” on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show.
Packing a genuine rock tone with a bit of blues, “Turn Blue” steps up the band's game from a decade ago with a richer and more mature sound. The Black Keys are playing at the Gulf Shore in Alabama, on the 16th, and then they're heading off to Europe and the UK in the summer.
