The Black Keys have shared their new single, “It Ain’t Over,” from their upcoming album Dropout Boogie, out May 13th via Nonesuch Records.
“It Ain’t Over” was co-written by Dan Auerback and Patrick Carney along with Reigning Sound’s Greg Cartwright. Listen to the song below. The trio also co-wrote the previously released single “Wild Child.”
Dropout Boogie comes out May 13th and follows last year’s Delta Kream, a covers album in which Auerbach and Carney offer new renditions of classics by R. L. Burnside, John Lee Hooker, Big Joe Williams and more.
Featuring contributions from ZZ Top’s Billy F Gibbons and Kings of Leon collaborator Angelo Petraglia, the album sees the duo using a number of first takes, a decision they made as a way to get back to the the “stripped-down blues-rock of The Black Keys’ early days making music together in Akron, Ohio basements”.
The Black Keys will embark on a tour in support of the new album in September. Check out the dates here.
