It was the band's second live performance of the 'Turn Blue' single
The Black Keys performed their recent single ‘Fever’ on Later… with Jools Holland last night (April 29).
It was the Nashville based duo’s second ever live performance of the track – which features on their forthcoming eighth album ‘Turn Blue’ – following its recent debut live play on the Italian show Che Tempo Che Fa.

‘Turn Blue’, the follow-up 2011’s ‘El Camino’, is out on May 12. It was produced by Danger Mouse alongside Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney and recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood last summer as well as at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, Michigan at the start of 2013.
The Black Keys recently said that they don’t see themselves as “underdogs” any more, adding that success has made them a target for criticism. Speaking to Mojo, the band say they believe people are now expecting them to “fuck up” because it took them years to make it big.
“I don’t view us as underdogs any more,” Patrick said. “In fact, I view us as more of a target now.” He added: “I think there’s probably people that just want us to fuck it all up. It’s inevitable that you fuck it up somehow. It makes more sense to the universe if we fuck up, d’you know what I mean?”
The ‘Turn Blue’ tracklisting is:
‘Weight Of Love’
‘Year In Review’
‘Bullet In The Brain’
‘It’s Up To You Now’
‘Waiting On Words’
‘In Our Prime’
‘Gotta Get Away’
