The Black Keys are starting work on their follow-up to 2011’s ‘El Camino’

We have some good news for Black Keys fans today: The Akron, Ohio-based blues-rock duo was back in the studio this week to start recording the follow-up to their 2011 release, “El Camino.”

“We’re going to start making the new album in the second week of January and we’re hoping to have it done by sometime in March,” guitarist Dan Auerbach told U.K. magazine Uncut, when asked about a timeline for the new album.

As for what to expect from the new release, it’s likely to be spontaneous. The unstructured approach is nothing new for the Black Keys, as Auerbach says that he and drummer Pat Carney never write anything before heading into the studio, instead allowing the creative process to flow instinctively.

“The record isn’t written yet, we’ll do it when we get into the studio,” he explained. “This is when we both work best, when we’re dying to make an album. All of our records take place in the studio, in that we make stuff up while we’re there.”
