If you’re surprised the Black Keys have released another album so quickly after the very successful, Brother, you’re not alone. The blues/rock duo could probably have milked that album for another year or so. Regardless, last week they announced the arrival of their seventh LP, Camino, and it feels a bit weird complaining about the band releasing more music. Talk about first world problems.
On Wednesday morning, the duo dropped a video for “Lonely Boy,” the first single off the new record. The song is great, but the video is something special. Honestly, it’s a bit bizarre, a bit funny, and has huge viral potential. This is straight OK Go territory.
The guy does a mean Carlton Banks! Between this, the Bob Odenkirk-starring announcement video for Camino, and the video for “Howlin’ For You” it feels like they’ve really stepped up their video efforts.
New album hits store on December 6.
