The Black Keys perform Edwyn Collins’ ‘A Girl Like You’ on US television – watch

Duo appeared on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'

The Black Keys last night (September 22) performed a cover of Edwyn Collins ‘A Girl Like You’ and new single ‘Gotta Get Away’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney brought their brand of bluesy garage rock to the late night US chat show, appearing as musical guests to perform a television premiere of their Edwyn Collins ‘A Girl Like You’ cover and new single ‘Gotta Get Away’.

The duo are in the middle of touring North America in support of new album ‘Turn Blue’, which debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 and reached Number Two on the UK Official Album Chart. Both songs are currently staples of their live shows.

Collins himself recently took to Twitter after a fan-recorded video of the band’s cover of his 1994 song was released online, calling their take “beautiful, super and great”.

The Black Keys will tour the UK in 2015, with a run of five arena shows in February 2015 confirmed. They will kick off the tour in Manchester at the Phones 4u Arena on February 27 before playing in Birmingham, Glasgow, London and Leeds.
