Hear The Black Keys’ New Song ‘Fever’

By Radio.com Staff

Ohio rockers the Black Keys have released “Fever,” the band’s first new song in almost three years.

The new song follows last week’s promotional blitz that included the announcement of upcoming album, Turn Blue, via a tweet from boxing legend Mike Tyson that pointed fans towards a bizarre commercial campaign. The full-length is due to drop on May 13.

The catchy and melodic tune features a keyboard line that’s destined to get stuck in countless heads and an urgent vocal from frontman Dan Auerbach. It is also very clearly produced by Danger Mouse.

Listen to the song below:

 

From a press release, Carney said of the album, “We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a record—not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either. On this record, we let the songs breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds. We’re excited for the world to hear Turn Blue.”

Also stated in the press release, the band detailed what the title ‘Turn Blue’ could mean:

A: Suffocation

B: Sadness

C: Numbness from extreme cold

D: A Cleveland late night TV host from the 1960s named Ghoulardi

E: All of the above

Whatever you make of the title, Turn Blue is out  May 13 on Nonesuch, and features production once again by Danger Mouse, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney.

The band as also announced a grip of European festival dates over the summer, which includes one lone U.S. date at Alabama’s Hangout Music fest.
