Black Keys Have Completed Seventh Album, Plan To Release It This Year

    Sometime, in between touring the hell out of Brothers, the Black Keys have finished their seventh album, at least according to 130 BPM. And not only has the group finished the album, they’re readying it for release later this year. According to an interview with VOIR.CA, the group said the album is their “fastest,” with influences like the Cramps, the Clash and the Stones coming through more than their blues influences. It remains to be seen if the “it’ll be out later this year” stuff is just optimistic on the part of the band or not, but get ready folks: A new Black Keys album is imminent. [130 BPM]
