The Black Keys Announces New Single 'Bullet In The Brain' Released In The UK June 30th 2014

The Black Keys release their new single 'Bullet In The Brain' on Nonesuch Records on June 30.  'Bullet In The Brain' is taken from The Black Keys' highly acclaimed new album, Turn Blue, which was released on May 12 and debuted at # 2 in the UK.  Produced by Danger Mouse, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, Turn Blue comprises 11 new tracks, including the first single, 'Fever'. 
 
The Black Keys will embark on an extensive European festival tour this summer, including Glastonbury on June 25 and Latitude onJuly 20, followed by a North American tour this fall with special guests Cage The Elephant, Jake Bugg and St. Vincent.
 
Turn Blue was recorded at Sunset Sound in L.A. during the summer of 2013 with additional recording done at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, MI and Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound in Nashville in early 2014.  Of the new album, the band says Turn Blue could refer to:
 
A: Suffocation
B: Sadness
C: Numbness from extreme cold
D: A Cleveland late night TV host from the 1960s named Ghoulardi
E: All of the above
 
Carney also adds, "We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a record - not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either.  On this record, we let the songs breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds.  We're excited for the world to hear Turn Blue."
 
This is the eighth full-length album from the duo and follows 2011's critically and commercially acclaimed El Camino, which is now certified RIAA Platinum.  Internationally, El Camino is Gold in Belgium, Spain, Italy and Holland; Platinum in Ireland, France and the UK; and double Platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.  The record also resulted in three awards at the 55th annual Grammy Awards - Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album.  The band now has a total of six Grammy Awards including three in 2010 for their breakout, RIAA Platinum album, Brothers.
