Black Keys to release first new music since 'El Camino'

By Daniel S Levine,

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, better to known to the music industry as The Black Keys, are set to release their first new music since 2011’s El Camino. The duo’s new single will premiere on the radio Monday.

The track, called “Fever,” will be played on rock radio stations starting at 3:30 p.m. ET Monday, reports Revolt. A source told the magazine that the track is “amazing,” but no further details on a forthcoming album were available.

Keys fans are currently experiencing the longest drought in the band’s history without new music. Since Brothers launched them into the mainstream in 2010, the group seemed to be working non-stop, especially since El Camino was released barely a year later. However, they slowed down their output for other projects.

Pitchfork notes that Carney worked with the Black Lips and toured with the flaming Lips. The drummer also performed at the Roseland Ballroom for Super Bowl XLVIII.

Auerbach has been working with Lana Del Rey on her new album, Ultraviolence. The guitarist also contributed to music by JEFF the Brotherhood and Ray LaMontagne.

The group won three Grammys for El Camino, so there will be some high anticipation for “Fever” and the new album. El Camino, which featured the hit “Lonely Boy,” won Best Rock Album.
