    The Black Keys to Release "Lonely Boy" Limited-Edition 12" on Record Store Day's "Back to Black" Friday

    As part of Record Store Day's "Back to Black" Friday on November 25, 2011, The Black Keys will release a limited-edition vinyl 12-inch of their new single, "Lonely Boy" (pictured at left), to participating indie music retailers. Both the lead track and the B-side, "Run Right Back," are featured on the band's forthcoming album, El Camino, which hits stores on December 6. Album pre-orders, available now in the Nonesuch Store, include a download of "Lonely Boy," which will be delivered on October 26.

    Rolling Stone, which revealed the Record Store Day 12-inch cover art earlier today, spoke with the band's creative director, Michael Carney, about his design for the record sleeve. "I went to take a picture of the building that the [band's 2004] album Rubber Factory was recorded in, and this is what was there—a giant pile of bricks and a bulldozer," Carney says. "The back cover is a pile of discarded tires behind an abandoned shopping mall."
