Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have returned with the first song from The Black Keys in five years, “Lo/Hi.” The driving rocker is typical Black Keys in the best way with a fuzzed-out guitar line and joyful backing vocals. It’s the first we’ve heard from the duo since 2014’s Turn Blue, their eighth studio album.

In the meantime, Auerbach and Carney have kept themselves busy. Carney created the band Sad Planets with John Petkovic, penned the theme song for BoJack Horseman, and produced Jessy Wilson's debut single "Love & Sophistication" and is expected to produce her debut album Phase. Auerbach started the band The Arcs with Richard Swift, Leon Michels, Nick Movshon, Homer Steinweiss, and Kenny Vaughan, released solo material under his own name, and has produced music for countless other artists.

Listen to “Lo/Hi” below.
