You have to hand it to the Black Keys. Nine months after the release of El Camino, the band revealed to Rolling Stone that they’ve already hit the studio in Nashville to begin work on their next album.
“We spent a week in the studio,” guitarist/singer Dan Auerbach says of the July session. Though the session wasn’t particularly focused and they didn’t get a lot done, the duo managed to make some progress and laid down the foundation for some future tracks.
Auerbach also revealed that the band hasn’t reached out to a particular producer yet. On their past three albums, they’ve worked with Danger Mouse.
The Akron-natives plan to regroup in early 2013 to begin officially recording the album, and as Carney told Rolling Stone earlier this summer, they hope to finish quickly.
