    The Black Keys' 'El Camino' (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) Four-CD Set Now Available on Nonesuch

    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.

    El Camino was produced by Danger Mouse and The Black Keys and was recorded in the band’s then-new hometown of Nashville during the spring of 2011. The Black Keys won three awards at the 55th annual Grammys for El Camino—Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album—among other worldwide accolades.

    The week of release, The Black Keys performed El Camino songs on Saturday Night Live (their second appearance that year), the Colbert Report, and the Late Show with David Letterman, and later that year, played their first Madison Square Garden show. To mark today's tenth anniversary of the band's Saturday Night Live set of the El Camino tracks "Lonely Boy" and "Gold on the Ceiling," the show has shared those performances; you can watch them here:

    The album’s first single, “Lonely Boy,” reached #1 on the Alternative and AAA charts; it also entered the top 10 at Rock radio. The second single, “Gold on the Ceiling,” hit #1 on Alternative radio, while the third single, “Little Black Submarines,” reached the top 3. This week, “Lonely Boy” and “Gold on the Ceiling” were certified 2X platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, while “Little Black Submarines” was certified platinum.

    In the UK, the album gave the band their first top 10 hit and it has been certified Platinum in the UK, Belgium, France, Ireland, and the Netherlands; Triple Platinum in Australia and New Zealand; Quadruple Platinum in Canada; and Gold in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Spain, and Switzerland. Of the album’s singles, “Lonely Boy” was certified nine-times Platinum in Canada, Triple Platinum in Australia, Platinum in New Zealand, and Gold in Denmark and the UK. “Gold on the Ceiling” was certified Platinum in Australia and Canada. The Black Keys also were nominated for an MTV European Music Award in 2012.

    In other Black Keys news, the duo of singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney last week scored a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album for Delta Kream, which was released in May by Nonesuch Records. The project, which features eleven Mississippi hill country blues songs by artists including R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, was the band’s fifth consecutive top 10 debut on the Billboard 200.

    Formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001, The Black Keys, who have been called “rock royalty” by the Associated Press and “one of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands on the planet” by Uncut, are guitarist/singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney. Cutting their teeth playing small clubs, the band have gone on to sell out arena tours and have released nine previous studio albums: their debut The Big Come Up (2002), followed by Thickfreakness (2003) and Rubber Factory (2004), along with their releases on Nonesuch Records, Magic Potion (2006), Attack & Release (2008), Brothers (2010), El Camino (2011), Turn Blue (2014) and, most recently, “Let’s Rock” (2019), plus and a tenth anniversary edition of Brothers (2020). The band has won six Grammy Awards and a BRIT and headlined festivals in North America, South America, Mexico, Australia, and Europe.

    Guitarist/composer Mary Halvorson makes her Nonesuch debut with two albums, Amaryllis and Belladonna, out now. The two suites come in a two-LP vinyl set or as two separate CDs and digital albums, produced and mixed by John Dieterich. "These are new landmarks in Halvorson’s already inimitable discography," exclaims the Guardian in a five-star, Jazz Album of the Month review. Amaryllis is a six-song suite performed by a newly formed sextet of master improvisers; the Mivos string quartet joins for three of the songs, making this the largest ensemble for which Halvorson has written to date; you can watch a new video for the title track here. Belladonna is a set of five compositions written for Halvorson on guitar plus the Mivos Quartet, whose parts are through-composed and augmented by Halvorson’s guitar improvisations. They celebrate the albums’ release with performances of the two suites in Brooklyn, New Hampshire, and Quebec next week.
