  The Black KeysPDF files may take a moment to load

Turn Blue marks the Black Keys’ eighth studio album and sees the duo continue to grow.

The psychedelic album cover and psych-rock soul reflect the style of co-producer Danger Mouse. This is the band’s fourth collaboration with the producer, known for his work with Jay-Z, Gorillaz and Beck.

With morose lyrics and a tempo slower than 2011’s El Camino, the album not only echoes my previous time wasted in a relationship, but also guitarist Dan Auerbach’s recently failed marriage.

Gone are the days when Arts students could release their pent up rage against the faculty of engineering in a cutthroat game of dodgeball.
