The Black Keys recently debuted the new song “Lo/Hi” (Nonesuch Records), the first new music from the band since their 2014 album, Turn Blue. Listen here. “Lo/Hi” was written and produced by Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, and recorded at Nashville’s Easy Eye Sound studio. Rolling Stone named the track a “Song You Need to Know” and said, “the Keys have officially returned, louder than ever” and the New York Times calls the song “the kind of garage-boogie stomp that the band never left behind.”
Additionally, GQ magazine included “Lo/Hi” in its list of Songs You Need to Hear This Week and called it “a snarling and immediate little slice of heaven from the Ohio rock stars.”
