The Spectacular New Album Turn Blue And The World Cafe Quiz With The Black Keys

May 13, 2014 - It would be hard to predict that from the modest blues-rock beginnings of The Big Come-up and Thickfreakness that The Black Keys would become the hit making machine they are today.

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney are back with a new album Turn Blue produced once again by the boys and Brian Burton, Danger Mouse. The relationship between The Keys and the all-star producer began with the breakthrough album Brothers in 2010 and the hit "Tighten Up" and is now three albums deep. The album is released today and we'll hear some of the new 70’s music influenced songs.

More importantly Dan and Patrick take our quiz as we find out how much they really know about each other after all those hours together in the van. Favorite foods, phobias, drinks and taco-toppings are all discussed along with more musical questions. We even find out the first song they ever jammed on when they first met. We only wish we had used Turn Blue’s new swirly psychedelic cover to hypnotize the guys.
