Last month, The Black Keys announced a new blues covers album, Delta Kream. With the announcement came the release of the album's first single, a loose, limber and explosive take on John Lee Hooker's Crawling King Snake.

Now, the band has released a second single from the album, a swampy, spirited version of R.L. Burnside’s Going Down South that you can check out in the video below.
