The Black Keys is an American rock band formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney. The Black Keys' eighth studio album, "Turn Blue," was released in 2014.
The album was produced by Danger Mouse, who had previously worked with the band on their album "El Camino" (2011). "Turn Blue" was a commercial success, reaching number one on the Billboard 200 chart and receiving generally positive reviews from critics. The album's lead single, "Fever," was a top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The Black Keys embarked on a world tour in support of "Turn Blue," which included performances at festivals and arenas across North America, Europe, and Australia. The tour featured a stage design that included a large light-up "B" and a video screen that displayed psychedelic imagery during the band's performances.
The album's title, "Turn Blue," was inspired by a song that Auerbach wrote while going through a difficult time in his personal life. The song was not included on the album, but its title served as a metaphor for the band's emotional state during the album's creation. The album features a mix of upbeat rock songs and slower, more introspective tracks.
"Turn Blue" received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Album, and the album's title track won the Grammy for Best Rock Performance. The Black Keys continued to tour and release music after "Turn Blue," but the album remains a highlight of their career and a testament to their evolution as a band.
