UPDATE - 3/24 10:30 a.m. PT: As expected, The Black Keys have released the first single
Turn Blue - "Fever":
Just when we thought we had seen it all The Black Keys go
ahead and announce the release of their new album using Mike Tyson's Twitter account. The retired boxer's tweet led to a
creepy, '80s-style video which ends on a frame revealing Turn Blue will be
on May 13.
It's been three years since The Black Keys released El Camino, which contained
singles "Lonely Boy" and "Gold on the Ceiling" and scored Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney
three Grammys (Best Rock Album for El Camino and both Best Rock Performance and
Best Rock Song for "Lonely Boy"). We'll get a taste of the new album on Monday, when the
single "Fever" hits US rock radio according to Revolt. The Black Keys are among the headliners of this year's Hangout Music Fest.
Here's the infamous tweet followed by the teaser video:
