Patrick and Dan are back! The Black Keys released new music for first time in five years today. The Black Keys shared a song called “Lo/Hi.” The song was produced by Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound Studio. The band leaned heavy into their traditional blues rock sound. What separates this song from previous Keys singles is the addition of the female backing vocals sung by Leisa Hans and Ashley Wilcoxson.
The Black Keys may not have been active as a duo, but individually both have stayed busy. Auerbach released music as The Arcs and solo. Plus he has his record label, Easy Eye Sound. Carney has produced other bands, worked with his partner/fiancee Michelle Branch, and became a father.
No word yet if “Lo/Hi” is the first part of a bigger project or just a one off single.
