The Black Keys return with their song “Lo/Hi” (Nonesuch Records), the first new music from the band since its 2014 album, “Turn Blue.” Listen HERE, and watch the YouTube visualizer HERE.

“Lo/Hi” was written and produced by Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, and recorded at Nashville’s Easy Eye Sound studio.

Since their last album together, both Auerbach and Carney have been creative forces behind a number of wide-ranging artists. Auerbach formed the Easy Eye Sound record label, named after his Nashville studio, in 2017, with the release of his second solo album, “Waiting on a Song.”

Since its launch, Easy Eye Sound has become home to a wide range of artists, including Yola, Shannon & The Clams, Dee White, Shannon Shaw, Sonny Smith, Robert Finley, and The Gibson Brothers. It also has released the posthumous album by Leo Bud Welch, as well as previously unreleased material by Link Wray.

Carney has produced and recorded new music with artists such as Calvin Johnson, Michelle Branch, Damns of the West, Tobias Jesso Jr., Jessy Wilson, Tennis, Repeat Repeat, Wild Belle, Sad Planets, and Turbo Fruits. He also created the theme music for the Netflix TV show “BoJack Horseman” with his late uncle, Ralph Carney.

Formed in Akron, Ohio, in 2001, The Black Keys have released eight studio albums. Their debut, “The Big Come Up” (2002), was followed by “Thickfreakness” (2003) and “Rubber Factory” (2004), along with their releases on Nonesuch Records: “Magic Potion” (2006), “Attack & Release” (2008), “Brothers” (2010), “El Camino” (2011) and, most recently, “Turn Blue” (2014). The band has won six Grammy Awards and headlined festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Governors Ball.
