The Black Keys – Eagle Birds


Casey here with my DJ pick of the week from The Black Keys. “Eagle Birds” is the latest single from their forthcoming LP, Let’s Rock, out June 28 via Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch Records. The album marks the band’s ninth LP since 2014.

“When we’re together, we are the Black Keys, that’s where that real magic is, and always has been since we were 16,” frontman Dan Auerbach says in statement. “The record is like a homage to electric guitar,” drummer Patrick Carney adds. “We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to.”

Listen to “Eagle Birds” below and let us know what you think.

Casey is that rarest of creatures…a Native Tennesseean. His love of music can be traced to the day his dad sat him down and played him Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” Everything pretty much changed after that. He began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 at an AM station in Northern Middle Tennessee. It was there he learned how to cue vinyl records, splice tape with razor blades, and other skills that no longer serve any purpose. In the late nineties, he was the host of our evening show until management decided that probably wasn’t a good idea anymore. Casey returned to Nashville airwaves in 2016. When he isn’t on the air, he spends his time with his wife and son. He would also appreciate it if you’d get offa his lawn.
