The Black Keys' "Turn Blue" Out May 13 On Nonesuch Records; Pre-order To Download First Single, "Fever"

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Black Keys' new album, Turn Blue, will be released May 13, 2014, on Nonesuch Records. Produced by Danger Mouse, Dan Auerbach, and Patrick Carney, Turn Blue features 11 new tracks, including the first single, "Fever," which can be heard below and is included as a free instant download with LP, CD, and digital preorders of the album in the and at, along with early access to tickets for the upcoming North American tour before the general ticket on-sale. T-shirt bundles are available on the band's site as well. Digital pre-orders are also available at iTunes.

The Black Keys will headline the Hangout Festival in Alabama on May 16 before embarking on an extensive European festival tour this summer. See below for tour details and ticket links.

Turn Blue was recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood 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

Moreover, Carney comments, "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.
