RAT Rock News

The Black Keys have offered up a new single with “It Ain’t Over,” the second track preview from their new studio album Dropout Boogie, due out May 13.

Embedded below, the new track comes over a month after the release of the LP’s lead single “Wild Child” and about three months following the announcement of the Akron, Ohio duos North American tour.

Per the album’s listing, “As they’ve done their entire career, The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney wrote all of the material for their new album, ‘Dropout Boogie,’ in the studio, and the album captures a number of first takes that hark back to the stripped-down blues rock of their early days making music together in Akron, Ohio basements.”

The listing added, “After hashing out initial ideas at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, the duo welcomed new collaborators Billy F. Gibbons, Greg Cartwright, and Angelo Petraglia to the sessions, marking the first time they’ve invited multiple new contributors to work simultaneously on one of their own albums.”

Dropout Boogie is currently available for pre-order at TheBlackKeys.com in both CD and vinyl formats.
