BLACK KEYS UNVEIL VIDEO FOR ‘WEIGHT OF LOVE
The Black Keys have unveiled a new video for the track "Weight Of Love," off their current album Turn Blue. The not-safe-for-work clip featuring a group of scantily clad women led by supermodel Lara Stone as they perform strange rituals around a beach and lighthouse, do their laundry along the shore and stay as clothing-free as possible while also sneaking glances at the Keys' previous video for "Fever" that's playing on a nearby TV set.
Keys drummer Patrick Carney told us that "Weight Of Love" is the only song the band has yet to play live ahead of the duo's upcoming U.S. tour: "That's the one song we've been kind of hesitant to f*** around with, and I think we were just trying to figure out how we would do it. It's the first time that we've really encountered, like, something that we couldn't figure out how to do. But we're gonna fool around with it and see if it works. But songs either work live or they don't work live, and I think for each record, half the record doesn't work live."
The clip for "Weight Of Love" was directed by Theo Wenner, son of Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner. Theo also directed "Fever."
"Fever," the first single from Turn Blue, was a Number One track at Modern Rock radio and Top 15 at Active Rock.
Turn Blue became the first Number One album of the Keys' 13-year career, debuting at the top of the Billboard album chart in May.
The Black Keys will kick off a massive North American fall tour on September 5th in Columbus, Ohio, wrapping up on December 21st in Kansas City.
