The Black Keys Reveal New Album Details, Stream New Single 'Fever'
The Black Keys have revealed details of their brand new album, "Turn Blue," NME reports.

The record, which is set for release on May 12, will feature 11 tracks. Scroll down for a full tracklisting. "Turn Blue" will be the Black Keys' eighth album, and follows their 2011 release "El Camino."

The album was produced by Danger Mouse alongside Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of the band and was recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood last summer. Additional recording was done at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, Michigan as well as frontman Auerbach's own Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville earlier this year.

The band have also released a new song called "Fever." Fans who pre-order the album will receive "Fever" for free immediately. Scroll down to listen to the song.

Speaking about the album, drummer Carney has said: "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'."

In addition, the band have said that the title of the record could refer to a number of things, those being: "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."

The duo have also revealed that they will be performing at Glastonbury Festival on Sunday June 29 - the final night of the festival - after recently being announced as the final headliner for this year's Latitude festival in July.

The "Turn Blue" tracklisting is:

01. Weight of Love
02. In Time
03. Turn Blue
04. Fever
05. Year in Review
06. Bullet in the Brain
07. It's Up to You Now
