Almost exactly one year after the Black Keys released their last album Delta Kream, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will release a new one. Dropout Boogie is out May 13 via Nonesuch. The album features collaborations with ZZ Top’s Billy F. Gibbons, Reigning Sound and Oblivians’ Greg Cartwright, and Angelo Petraglia. Check out the Bryan Schlam–directed video for “Wild Child,” which features Cartwright and Petraglia, below.
The new album’s release falls near the 20th anniversary of the band’s first album The Big Come Up. “It’s the natural chemistry Pat and I have,” Auerbach said in a statement. “Being in a band this long is a testament to that. It was a real gift that we were given. I mean, the odds of being plopped down a block-and-a-half from each other in Akron, Ohio–it just seems crazy.”
The band is touring North America this summer and fall.
