    The Black Keys to Release “Let’s Rock” 45-RPM Deluxe Edition for Record Store Day

    Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record stores, is set to take place on Saturday, April 18, 2020, and among the special releases on that day is a limited-edition, 45-RPM version of The Black Keys’ chart-topping ninth album, “Let’s Rock.”

    The new Record Store Day edition of “Let’s Rock” is being pressed on two 180-gram vinyl discs and comes in a deluxe holographic gatefold jacket, with each piece individually numbered. The set is limited to 7,500 pieces worldwide.

    "Let's Rock" was first released on June 28 via Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch Records to critical praise, with Rolling Stone saying, “singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney bring a heightened purism too, emphasizing the power-duo force of their early records.” The Associated Press adds, “The Black Keys are rock royalty and to the relief of many, they aren’t quite ready to relinquish their reign.” "A return to what The Black Keys do best,” says Uncut. “Brilliant.”

    Record Store Day celebrates the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores around the world. To find out what special releases will be available at a participating local retailer near you, head to recordstoreday.com.

    Mountain Man—the trio of Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—has released Look at Me Don’t Look at Me, a live album recorded in November 2018 at Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle. The live recording captures the band’s intimate touring shows in support of its acclaimed Nonesuch release, Magic Ship, and features tracks from that album, as well as songs from the trio’s 2010 debut, Made the Harbor; Molly Sarle's “Human”; covers of Fiona Apple's “Hot Knife” and Michael Hurley's "Blue Mountain"; and the group’s singularly quirky banter.

    The Staves have released "Nazareth," the band’s first new music since its 2017 EP with yMusic. "We recorded 'Nazareth' in one take on a field recorder sat outside the studio in the summer of 2018," says the trio. "The sun was shining and the birds were singing. We tried recording it in the studio but just kept coming back to this version. It seemed to have the magic.  The song was intended to be in the spirit of an Irish blessing or a kind of a prayer, asking to be kept safe—but it pretty quickly became a more personal and introspective lyric. Moments of glory quickly faded. Worrying, trying. How we mean everything and nothing at the same time. To everyone, to no one."
