Stream the Black Keys' 'Turn Blue' Before You Buy (or Pirate) It

Posted By on Mon, May 5, 2014 at 6:00 PM

The Black Keys are releasing their eighth album Turn Blue anywhere and everywhere you can buy music on Tuesday, May 13. Thankfully, you can listen to the whole damn thing on iTunes before you impulsively buy because the Black Keys.

Dan Auerbach, the Black Keys lead singer, told Rolling Stone that this is "headphone record."

From RS:

"Turn Blue is a genuine turning point — into a decisively original rock, with a deeper shade of blues," writes Rolling Stone's David Fricke. "You still get the minimalist vigor of the Keys' first records a decade ago. But this is more brazen severity, richer and forward in its hip-hop allusions, super-size-rock dynamics, pictorial studio flourishes and offbeat commercial savvy."

Strap on those headphones, plant your ass and keep those mushrooms handy.
