The Black Keys To Record New Album This Winter
The Black Keys plan to head back into the studio this winter to record their eighth album. The "Gold On The Ceiling" duo have revealed to BBC 6Music that they are heading to a studio in North Michigan this winter to begin work on the follow-up to 2011's commercially successful "El Camino". Speaking to presenter Matt Everitt, drummer Patrick Carney said they were going back into the studio because they "had to make an album", while guitarist/front man Dan Auerbach said it's "not a new thing" for them to be returning to the studio so soon after their last record. He added: "That's just how we've operated for twelve years. We're just doing what we do. It will just be the two of us in a studio in North Michigan during the winter it's going to be awesome." Auerbach also revealed that they may continue their recording sessions in Nashville later next year (2013) and plan to "hook-up" with Dangermouse, who co-produced "El Camino", for a couple of tracks. Last night, The Black Keys played the second date of their two night residency at London's O2 Arena. The shows were the duo's biggest ever gigs in the UK, NME notes. The duo have also been shortlisted for an Oscar. Their track "Baddest Man Alive", from RZA's kung-fu movie "The Man With The Iron Fists", is one of 75 tracks nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
