The Black Keys have released the official music video for "Poor Boy a Long Way From Home," an R.L. Burnside tune they perform on their new album, Delta Kream. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney are joined by Kenny Brown on guitar and Eric Deaton on bass, both long-time members of the bands of blues legends including Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. The video was directed by Ryan Nadzam and filmed in Mississippi at Jimmy Duck Holmes’ Blue Front Café, the oldest active juke joint in America. You can watch it here:

Delta Kream, released in May on Nonesuch Records, celebrates the band’s roots and features eleven Mississippi hill country blues songs by Burnside and Kimbrough, among others. The album takes its name from William Eggleston’s iconic Mississippi photograph that is on its cover. Delta Kream is available on all formats here.

The music from northern Mississippi, which came to life in juke joints, has long left an imprint on the band’s music, from their cover of R. L. Burnide’s "Busted" and Junior Kimbrough’s “Do The Romp” on their debut album, The Big Come Up; to their subsequent signing to Fat Possum Records, home to many of their musical heroes; and to their EP of Junior Kimbrough covers, Chulahoma.

In addition to paying homage to these Mississippi blues legends with Delta Kream, The Black Keys are working with VisitMississippi, the state's tourism organization, to sponsor new individual markers for R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough on the Mississippi Blues Trail, which tell the stories of the state’s blues artists both renowned and obscure through words and images. (Both musicians are currently acknowledged on a group marker in Holly Springs entitled "Hill Country Blues.") The new markers will be erected in the proposed locations of Holly Springs and Chulahoma, MS, places closely associated with Burnside and Kimbrough—a fitting tribute to these architects of Hill Country Blues and further recognition of their enduring contributions to American music. More information about the Mississippi Blues Trail is available here.

    Rhiannon Giddens was on PBS NewsHour to talk with Jeffrey Brown about her new role as artistic director of Silkroad, with whom she just concluded her first tour. "I love getting thrown something that I have never done before, but that I think I have the goods to do, but I have to figure out how to do it,” Giddens tells Brown. “And so I always say yes first and figure it out later.” You can watch Giddens’s conversation with Brown, who calls her "a boundless bridger of musical worlds and styles," here.
