Stream The Black Keys’ New Song, “Fever”

Ever since Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney let Danger Mouse into their lives on Attack & ReleaseThe Black Keys have become undeniably funkier. The guitar riffs have become slinkier and the drums have transitioned from “smash the shit out of them” to “smash the shit out of them, but also two-step to this.”

The Black Keys’ new track, “Fever,” from their upcoming Turn Blue LP, is the sort of groovy fare that recent fans have come to expect from the Akron duo after El Camino, but also definitely the kind of song that will have longtime fans yearning for a The Big Come Up era garage face-melter. I am excited to hear all the tracks from this upcoming album, and I hope that Pat Carney smashes the shit out of his drums in all the ways that only he can.

  • This new single is pretty bad by Black Keys standards, and imo not very good in general.

    I was hoping they’d return to the griitier sound they had on albums before “Brothers” but it seems they’re doing the opposite.
