According to Rolling Stone, the inspiration for “Let’s Rock” comes from a collaboration between Dan Auerbach and late guitarist Glenn Schwartz.


“We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to,” said Carney in a statement.

“When we’re together we are The Black Keys, that’s where that real magic is, and always has been since we were 16,” added Auerbach.


“Let’s Rock” marks The Black Keys’ first album in five years, following 2014’s “Turn Blue”. It was entirely written, produced and recorded live by the pair at Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, Tennessee.

The LP features back-up vocals from Leisa Hans and Ashley Wilcoxson, while Auerbach played most of the guitar solo.

The Black Keys also released their latest single “Eagle Birds” which follows the previously shared “Lo/Hi” along with the new album’s artwork, which features an electric chair. JB
