The Black Keys are already at work on a new album. According to Rolling Stone, the duo have gone back into the studio to begin laying idea’s down for their eighth studio album.
The band have spent the past nine-months relentlessly touring to promote their album, El Camino, which was released last December.
The pair spent about a week in a Nashville studio this past July to get the ball rolling for their next project. Since it is still early on in the process, no collaborators have signed on yet. For their past three albums the Keys have been working with the producer Danger Mouse.
“Not sure who we’re gonna work with or if we’re going to [produce] it ourselves,” said frontman Dan Auerbach in an interview with Rolling Stone. “We haven’t planned it out yet.”
Auerbach and drummer, Patrick Carney, plan to begin officially recording in early 2013. The band hopes to release the album next March.
