Earlier this month, a trailer for Blakroc 2 hit the internet, advising us that another batch of music combining the fury of The Black Keys with the rhymes of hip hop’s most elite emcees was coming soon. But now, Done Waiting points us to a recent interview with The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney in which he reveals that said trailer was an unauthorized leak and that there are in fact no plans for a second Blakroc album.
“Blakroc 2 is not coming out soon, although somehow a trailer that was made two years ago without our permission and then recirculated without our permission,” Carney explains. ”We have stuff recorded for it — about eight songs that I guess are done — but those were all recorded two years ago. So there are no plans for Blakroc 2 to be released as an album.”
Check out Carney’s complete interview below.
On the plus side, at least you still a new Black Keys album to look forward to.
