It follows the album’s first single, “Wild Child,” which has topped both the AAA and Alt charts. The Black Keys will tour North America for the first time in three years starting in July; international tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Black Keys have released “It Ain’t Over,” the second track from their upcoming album, Dropout Boogie, due May 13 on Nonesuch Records. A visualizer for the track can be seen below. “It Ain’t Over” was written by band members Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney in tandem with Reigning Sound’s Greg Cartwright.
“It Ain’t Over” follows the new album’s first single, “Wild Child,” which in just a month has already topped both the AAA and the Alt charts and Top 15 on the Active chart. Elsewhere around the world, the song is proving to be one of the band’s most successful radio hits to date.
Dropout Boogie features collaborations with Cartwright, Billy F Gibbons (ZZ Top), and Angelo Petraglia (Kings of Leon) and will be released one day before the twentieth anniversary of The Black Keys’ first LP, The Big Come Up. As they have done their entire career, Auerbach and Carney wrote all of the material in the studio, and the new album captures a number of first takes that hark back to the stripped-down blues rock of their early days making music together in Akron, Ohio basements.
The Black Keys will tour North America for the first time in three years starting in July. Band of Horses will support on all dates, while Ceramic Animal (July 9–30), Early James (August 24–September 9), and the Velveteers (October 2–18) will open at select performances. International tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
