The Black Keys Share New Song ‘It Ain’t Over’

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.
