    The Black Keys have released "Going Down South," the second single from their forthcoming tenth album, Delta Kream. The album celebrates the band’s roots and features eleven Mississippi hill country blues songs by R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, among others. Auerbach says of the song: “That was one of R. L. Burnside’s hits! We strayed a little from the original on our version with the falsetto and percussion, but we liked how it sounded in that moment. It’s become one of my favorites on the album.” You can watch the video, directed by Ryan Nadzam and filmed at Jimmy Duck Holmes’ Blue Front Café, the oldest active juke joint in America, here. The band will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and BBC Two's Later... with Jools Holland on the album's release day, May 14.

    Jeremy Denk is on 30 Bach: The Goldberg Variations Podcast. Denk, who recorded the Goldberg Variations for Nonesuch in 2013, takes part in a discussion of the episode's focus, Variation 25, led by host Lowry Yankwich, who says: “Amidst the exuberance, love, and joy of the final variations, Variation 25 is what makes the Goldbergs honest. It’s the dark center of the piece, the 'black pearl.'" The episode closes with Denk performing the variation.
