The Black Keys Release New Single, "Fever" from the Upcoming Album Turn Blue

The Black Keys have just put out their new single, "Fever," from their upcoming album Turn Blue, and even though it doesn't really have the sound of the past couple of Black Keys albums, it's still the fucking Black Keys and it's still really fucking good.

It has more of a psychedelic feel to it with a sweeping sound to it that doesn't have the bluesy rock edge of past stellar songs like "Lonely Boy," "Tighten' Up," or "Howling For You."  I'm not saying I don't like it, quite the opposite actually.  It's just going to take a little while for me to get used to calling this a Black Keys song, since it doesn't sound like anything they've put out before.

I'll tell you one thing though, it definitely has me both excited and really curious about what their album will sound like from start to finish.

"Fever" is getting some rotation on 104.1 right now, so keep your ears open.

Turn Blue comes out May 13th.
