Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach Producing Dr. John’s ‘Locked Down’

    The Black Keys boys are sure keeping busy these days as producers. When he isn’t dissing Nickelback, drummer Patrick Carney has been working with acts like Tennis and the Sheepdogs. And now we have learned that guitarist/vocalist Dan Auerbach is also hitting the studio with an outside act. He was brought on as the producer for legendary New Orleans blues musician Dr. John’s new album, Locked Down. Auerbach, who is very honored to have worked on the project, said Dr. John “inspired me every single day we were in the studio together: musically, spiritually, cosmically.” Safe to say we’re interested in hearing Locked Down when it drops April 3 via Nonesuch. [CoS]
