Earlier this week the Black Keys offered a free download of lead Brothers single, “Tighten Up” and new track, “Next Girl” if you ordered tickets for their upcoming tour. Thanks to the majestic power of the Internet, “Next Girl” is streaming right over here. It’s a fuzzy slow-burner, moving glacially until it’s pavement-busting solo. This is clearly back to work stuff for the Black Keys; this hammers with a rawness they haven’t had in spades since Rubber Factory.
Brothers is due out on May 18 via Nonesuch.
