The Black Keys released their latest album, Dropout Boogie, on Friday. The band will mark the release with a live performance on iHeartRadio stations across the country today, Friday, May 13th at 7 p.m. PT.
Featuring previously released singles “Wild Child” and “It Ain’t Over”, Dropout Boogie is The Black Keys’ 11th studio album and their first since 2021’s Delta Kream. The record includes collaborations with Billy F Gibbons (ZZ Top), Angelo Petraglia (Kings of Leon), and Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound), and the album’s release coincides with the 20th anniversary of the band’s first LP, The Big Come Up.
Prior to release day, The Black Keys performed a rare intimate club show at The Troubadour in L.A., which was streamed live and rebroadcasted exclusively via Flymachine.
