    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.
