The Black Keys unveil new album ‘El Camino’ in car sale advert spoof – video

Duo's seventh album is due for release on December 5

The Black Keys have unveiled their new album ‘El Camino’ in a bizarre car sale spoof.

The band, who released their last album ‘Brothers’ in 2010, have set up a new website, which features a link to a video which stars US comedic actor and How I Met Your Mother star Bob Odenkirk attempting to film an advert to sell a used El Camino car.

At the conclusion of the video the words ‘The Black Keys. El Camino. December 6’ appear on the screen, which would indicate the record will be released on December 5 in the UK. You can watch the video by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.


There is also a phone number listed on the spoof website, which when called plays a recorded message from The Black Keys themselves.

The band have previously said that ‘El Camino’ is strongly influenced by The Clash and The Cramps. There remains no confirmed tracklisting for the LP as yet, but tracks titled ‘Little Black Submarine’ and ‘Lonely Boy’ are both set to feature on the album.

The Black Keys tour the UK in February next year, playing four UK dates as part of a full European trek. These begin on February 3 at Nottingham‘s Capital FM Arena and run until February 10, when the band headline London‘s Alexandra Palace. They will also play Manchester and Edinburgh as part of the run.
