The Black Keys' "Run Right Back" Featured on NPR's "All Songs Considered"; "Wonderful," Says Host Bob BoilenThe Black Keys are featured on the latest edition of NPR's All Songs Considered, the show's last regular episode of the year. "Run Right Back," off the band's forthcoming album, El Camino, due out in just three weeks, December 6, on Nonesuch Records, kicks off the show. All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen calls it "wonderful" and says of the band: "They're the pillars. You just know they're gonna put out really solid rock." Listen to the complete episode and hear the album track at npr.org.
Band members Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney spoke with BBC 6Music about working on the new album with producer Danger Mouse and about their days on the road—el camino—earlier in their career. Listen to the interview at bbc.co.uk.
You'll be able to pick up a copy of both "Run Right Back" and "Lonely Boy," the first single off of El Camino, on the limited-edition vinyl 12-inch available at participating indie music retailers next week on Record Store Day's "Back to Black" Friday, November 25, and get all 11 tracks when the album is released on December 6.
To pre-order El Camino, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include an instant download of the single "Lonely Boy" and, starting release day, the complete album. You can also pre-order and get the single on iTunes and in The Black Keys' store.
Speaking of "Lonely Boy," Derrick Tuggle, the man who's front and center in the video for the song, stopped by the Ellen show yesterday to show off some of the moves he uses in the video. You can watch his performance on Ellen below and watch the original video again after that.
