The legendary American duo The Black Keys will release the album Ohio Players in April and present a first extract: “Beautiful People (Stay High)”.

The Black Keys keep releasing records. Discover their new single entitled “Beautiful People (Stay High)” and its deliciously retro music video via the player below:

This title is the first extract fromOhio Players, the duo’s next album, which will be released on April 5. Its title is inspired by the funk group of the same name. It includes participations from Greg Kurstin, Noel Gallagher, Beck and Dan “The Automator” Nakamura. Ohio Players is available for pre-order.

This record arrives less than two years later Dropout Boogie, a record that is both spontaneous and careful, marked by the presence of the singles “Wild Child“, and “It Ain’t Over“. In the meantime, the duo released a single entitled “No Lovin”, present on the compilation Tell Everybody!. The latter brings together The Black Keys with several groups signed to Easy Eye Sound, Dan Auerbach’s label. We find among them Robert Finley and Nat Myers.

If The Black Keys visited France after the release of Dropout Boogie, notably at the Zénith in Paris and the Nîmes Festival, they have not yet announced any dates in Europe.

The Ohio Players tracklist has not yet been revealed. Nonetheless, the band shared the cover art.
