iTunes Editors' Notes

The soul-infused bassline, haunting tape echo and snaking guitar solo of “Weight of Love” make a slow-burning opener for The Black Keys’ eighth studio album. At nearly seven-minutes long, the tune underscores the Akron duo’s continual evolution from the brilliantly scuzzy garage rock that put them on the map in the early ’00s. Aided by the co-production of Danger Mouse (who has joined them on every album since 2010’s Brothers), anything seems possible on Turn Blue. Vacillating between strutting, future-disco jams (“Bullet in the Brain”, “Year in Review”) and soulful synth-driven rockers (“10 Lovers”, “Fever”), Turn Blue is unified by singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach’s passionate songwriting, a brooding, ghostly atmosphere and the enduring power—and flexibility—of the blues.

first one of theirs I’m not buying instead going to go listen to rubber factory/thickfreakness & pretend this never happened.


Formed: 2001 in Akron, OH

It's too facile to call the Black Keys counterparts of the White Stripes: they share several surface similarities — their names are color-coded, they hail from the Midwest, they're guitar-and-drum blues-rock duos — but the Black Keys are their own distinct thing, a tougher, rougher rock band with a purist streak that never surfaced in the Stripes. But that's not to say that the Black Keys are blues traditionalists: even on their 2002 debut, The Big Come Up, they covered the Beatles' psychedelic...
