|The Black Keys|
The last Grammys showed that The Black Keys have truly broken through, scoring gold statuettes for Best Alternative Music Album Best Recording Package, and Best rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Now, according to Antiquiet, the boys are back in the studio to record their seventh album.
Frontman Dan Auerbach said about the process, 't's the fastest we've ever played. The new album doesn't sound like Brothers. It doesn't have that open soul feel to it. It's way more driving and the tempos are really fast.' He added about his approach to the new tunes, ''ve never been into guitar solos. I really like when every instrument in the band is a rhythm instrument. This record has a lot of that going on ' guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards all working together as a rhythm instrument. But unlike Brothers, which has more of these slower songs with an open feeling, [the new LP] is definitely fast.'
