The Black Keys Undergo Band Therapy in Official “Go” Video

The Black Keys have shared the official music video for a new song, “Go.” The track comes off their forthcoming album, Let’s Rock, due June 28 via Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch Records.

The new video, directed by Bryan Schlam, finds Black Keys members Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney undergoing band therapy after five years apart. Said Carney, “It was great making this video with Bryan, partially because it was filmed at the very type of place it is making fun of."

Added Auerbach, “The video was fun, but we still haven’t spoken.”

Let’s Rock was written, tracked live and produced by Auerbach and Carney at Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville and features backing vocals from Leisa Hans and Ashley Wilcoxson. Said Carney, “The record is like a homage to electric guitar. We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to.”
