Listen: The Black Keys’ new song “Turn Blue”

on April 14, 2014, 11:30am

During The Black Keys’ three-year break between albums, drummer Patrick Carney launched his own SiriusXM show. While Serious Boredom usually features Carney’s favorite indie artists from past and present, today’s episode featured the world premiere of “Turn Blue”, the title track of the Keys’ upcoming eighth studio album.

Following the psychedelic “Fever”, “Turn Blue” is a slow and sauntering blues-rock ballad, with Dan Auerbach crooning ache-filled lines like, “In the dead of the night I start to lose control… but I still carry the weight like I’ve always done before.” Depending on your mood, it’s either the Keys lulling you into their boudoir or singing you a little lullaby.

cup of quinoa offers 10% of the daily recommended quantity of
dietary fiber-1 cup of quinoa offers 10 grams of both soluble and insoluble
fiber. online The raspberry flavor compliments the strawberry
taste and yes it gave this jello cup an absolutely fruit filled taste.

These are truly great ideas in on the topic of blogging. You have
touched some nice factors here. Any way keep up wrinting.

I gotta agree with Kob. They lost their true-bluesy sound somewhere in the studio, and it seems like this is a step back in the right direction.

I love the new track. It sounds like it could be dropped into a Steve Miller Band album. Check out my review of the song along with other music, album and concert reviews at:
