    Watch: The Black Keys Perform "Lonely Boy" at Video Game Awards

    The Black Keys followed a week of performances in New York City celebrating the release of their new album, El Camino—including Saturday Night Live, The Colbert Report, the Late Show with David Letterman, and an intimate record-release show streamed live on MTV Hive—with a weekend on the West Coast, performing in Los Angeles at KROQ's 22nd annual Almost Acoustic Christmas last night and at the ninth annual Video Game Awards (VGA) broadcast live around the world via Spike TV and MTV 2 on Saturday. You can watch the band perform "Lonely Boy," the first single off of El Camino, from the VGAs below.

    "The Black Keys rocked the house with a perfect mix of old and new," says MTV's Kara Warner of Sunday's set at the Almost Acoustic Christmas show at LA's Gibson Amphitheatre. "From the familiar 'Howlin' for You,' 'Next Girl' and 'Tighten Up' [off of 2010's Brothers] to the brand-new 'Milk and Honey,' 'Sister' and current hit 'Lonely Boy,' the guys could have converted almost anyone in attendance to the Church of Keys with the way the audience hung on to every word and guitar stroke. We watched a group of three male fans continue to lose their minds after each song." Read more at mtv.com.

    To pick up a copy of El Camino, head to iTunes, Amazon, The Black Keys store, and the Nonesuch Store, where CDs and LPs are now 34% off and include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout.

    Yola has joined The Highwomen—Amanda Shires, Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, and Maren Morris—on the just-released self-titled track to the group's eponymous upcoming album, as does Sheryl Crow. Shires and Carlile wrote the song with Jimmy Webb, who had penned the 1985 tune "Highwayman" for the supergroup by that name featuring Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, and Johnny Cash. Hear it here. Rolling Stone called The Highwomen's recent Newport Folk Festival set with Yola "a triumph" and dubbed her "the single most sought-after voice at this year’s festival."
