The Black Keys will release their new album, Turn Blue, on May 13.  It will feature something the band has never done before.


A track on the album, Year in Review, features a sample of Nico Fidenco.  Fidenco is an Italian movie soundtrack composer and singer.  Drummer Patrick Carney tells NME that the track is, "the first song we've ever used a sample on."

The first track on the album, Weight of Love, is the band's longest song, ever. Front-man Dan Auerbach says, "I've never done a guitar solo like that."

Auerbach also told NME, that he and Carney only left the studio once during the two week recording process.
