Though it won’t be released until May 12, you can hear the Black Keys’ highly anticipated eighth album, Turn Blue, today. Featuring production work from Danger Mouse and the Keys themselves, we’ve already heard three outstanding tracks from the album—lead single “Fever,” title track “Turn Blue, and the excellent “Bullet in the Brain”—so we’re expecting nothing less from the rest of the project.
