Akron, Ohio rockers The Black Keys have been dominating the airwaves, not just here on XPN, but pretty much everywhere with their barn-burning single “Lo/Hi,” and today we have another new song from Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney to add to the mix. The bluesy boot-stomper “Eagle Birds” is a get-lonely jam that comes with the announcement that The Black Keys’ ninth studio album will be called “Let’s Rock” — something we previously knew as the name of their tour — and it comes out on June 28th via Nonesuch / Easy Eye Sound. Per the album cover, those quotation marks are part of the title — punctuation nerds, take note. 

Speaking of the album cover, it (along with the band’s new logo) were designed by Philly musician and visual artist Perry Shall; read about his journey, and his work with the band, in this 2018 profile by The Key’s Yoni Kroll.

The Black Keys will headline the Wells Fargo Center on October 14th with Modest Mouse and Jessy Wilson; tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Check out the band’s full itinerary of tour dates below, and pre-order “Let’s Rock” here.
