    The Black Keys were on NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday to discuss their new album, "Let's Rock." "We just kind of have always had this connection, where we can make music without really talking about it or thinking about it," says Dan Auerbach. "And when we were sixteen, that's why—that's what we realized right away. We just started playing, and it worked, you know? And that's just how it's always been." Patrick Carney adds: "I think this record—it made the most sense just to keep it simple and bring it back to the basics, which was just guitar and drums." You can hear the full interview here.
