The Black Keys "Let's Rock" Debuts at Number 1 on Billboard Chart

Image

The Black Keys’ ninth studio album, “Let’s Rock” debuted at number 1 on the US Top Current Album Chart, and number 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.


The Black Keys’ ninth studio album, “Let’s Rock,” was released on June 28 via Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch Records and debuted at number 1 on the US Top Current Album Chart, and number 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. As explained in their recent New York Times profile, the band decided not to participate in the current music- business practice of bundling their album with ticket sales. The Black Keys’ drummer Patrick Carney says: “We decided to avoid ticket bundling like we always have. To us, it feels like a gimmick. It exists solely as a way to game the charts and we want no part of that.” The album is also number 1 in the following categories: Top Current Rock Albums, Current Alternative Album, Current Digital Albums, LP Vinyl Album, and Top Internet. Internationally, “Let’s Rock” is the band’s third consecutive top 10 album in the UK, debuting at number 3, as well as top 10 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and Switzerland, amongst others.

“Let’s Rock,” a return to the straightforward rock of the singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney’s early days as a band, was written, tracked live, and produced by Auerbach and Carney at Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville and features backing vocals from Leisa Hans and Ashley Wilcoxson. “Let’s Rock” is available on all formats here.

The “Let’s Rock” Tour will hit major cities.
