BLACK KEYS DRUMMER WOULD LOVE TO MAKE NEW RECORD IN JANUARY
The Black Keys were a recording act before they even started playing live and drummer Patrick Carney told us that even though the band's latest album, Turn Blue, just came out in May, he'd love to start the next one as soon as possible: "I think if it were up to Dan (Auerbach, vocals and guitar) and we didn't have to consider the fact that we need to finish the complete tour cycle and go back to Europe and go to Australia -- if we didn't have those commitments, we would probably be back in the studio in January. By the time that, like, this record came out, we were ready to make another one."
Carney told Billboard, "We started the band because we wanted to make albums. We wanted to make one record, and then we found out we had to tour. We didn't play our first show 'til after our first record was recorded, so it's always been about making records, and it's been a process in growing to become good performers."
The Keys' eighth studio album, Turn Blue, debuted at Number One on the Billboard album chart, a first for the duo.
