News & Reviews

  • It was ten years ago today: The Black Keys' landmark seventh studio album, El Camino, was released on December 6, 2011, on Nonesuch Records. To mark the occasion, Derrick T. Tuggle, the dancing star of the 2011 video for the album track "Lonely Boy," stars in a new video in which he unboxes the band's new five-LP Super Deluxe 10th anniversary edition of that album. You can watch it and take a look inside the set here.

  • The Black Keys’ four-CD Super Deluxe 10th anniversary edition of their landmark seventh studio album, El Camino, is available today on Nonesuch Records. Following the November vinyl and digital release of music from the project, the four-CD version comprises a remastered version of the original album; a previously unreleased recording of a March 6, 2012, concert in Portland, ME.; a BBC Radio 1 Zane Lowe session from 2012; a 2011 Electro-Vox session; an extensive photo book; and a limited-edition lithograph. Today also marks the tenth anniversary of the band's performance of the El Camino tracks "Lonely Boy" and "Gold on the Ceiling," which the show has just shared again and can be seen here.
