The Black Keys schedule Saturday Night Live appearance

The Black Keys will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on May 10th, just three days before the release of their new album, “Turn Blue.”

Due May 13, the project was recorded last summer and co-produced by Danger Mouse and the band.

Drummer Patrick Carney said the album title could refer to several things: "A: Suffocation B: Sadness C: Numbness from extreme cold D: A Cleveland late night TV host from the 1960s named Ghoulardi E: All of the above."

“We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a record—not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either," he added. "On this record, we let the songs breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds. We’re excited for the world to hear Turn Blue.”

The Black Keys recently issued the title track from the album as the projects’ second single; last month, the band released “Fever” as the lead track – hear it here.
