    The Black Keys Debut Music Video for New Song, "Go," From Forthcoming Album, "'Let's Rock,'" Out June 28
    Ryan Mclemore

    The Black Keys have released the music video for their new song "Go," from their upcoming album "Let's Rock." The video is directed by Bryan Schlam and finds the band struggling to reconnect after five years apart. Pat Carney says, "It was great making this video with Bryan, partially because it was filmed at the very type of place it is making fun of," and Dan Auerbach adds, "The video was fun, but we still haven't spoken." Watch the video for "Go" here:

    Director Bryan Schlam says about the making of the video, "For 'Go,' I felt like we needed to address the elephant in the room. Where have the guys been for five years? I thought—Let’s send them to the next level of therapy. A retreat. A commune. A place that’s supposed to symbolize peace and unity ... and they’ll hate every second of it. It was a challenging video, not only in the task of having Dan and Patrick act in almost every shot, but also in keeping a narrative that feels cinematic and funny at the same time. We tried to balance the two, relying on situational humor and the effortlessly cool vibe of the song."

    The band made history this week with their song "Lo/Hi." The song tops Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs, Adult Alternative Songs, Rock Airplay, and Alternative Songs charts, making it the first time any song has reached #1 at all four formats simultaneously. Listen to "Lo/Hi" here.

    "Let's Rock" is a return to the straightforward rock of the singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney's early days as a band. Auerbach says, "When we're together we are The Black Keys, that's where that real magic is, and always has been since we were sixteen." The second song from the record, "Eagle Birds," debuted along with the album announce; it follows the previously released single "Lo/Hi." The Black Keys' thirty-one city North American tour begins September 23 (full schedule below). "Let's Rock" is available for pre-order on all formats here.

    "Let's Rock" was written, tracked live, and produced by Auerbach and Carney at Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville and features backing vocals from Leisa Hans and Ashley Wilcoxson. "The record is like a homage to electric guitar," says Carney. "We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to."

    The "Let's Rock" Tour will hit cities including Chicago, Nashville, New York, Los Angeles, and Austin. Special guests Modest Mouse will provide support on all dates, and Shannon & The Clams, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes, *repeat repeat, and Jessy Wilson will each open select shows on the tour. The band also headlines 2019's Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 21. Tickets for all dates are on sale at nonesuch.com/on-tour.
