Size MP3 album: 1426 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1869 mb.

Turn Blue is the eighth studio album by American rock duo the Black Keys. It was co-produced by Danger Mouse and the band, and was released on Nonesuch Records on May 12, 2014. The record was the group's fourth collaboration with Danger Mouse, following their previous studio album, El Camino (2011), which was their biggest commercial and critical success to that point

Turn Blue, the Black Keys‘ eighth studio album, opens with seven minutes of slow burn and eccentric fury. Weight of Love is the sort of uproar most bands would save for a big finish. But the Keys – singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney – and their co-producer Brian Burton, . Danger Mouse, show their nerve upfront in a mounting tension of acoustic guitar and painted-desert ambience, cut open by Auerbach’s machete-treble twang and battered by Carney’s unhurried John Bonham-like rolls. When Auerbach finally gets to the chorus, he sings it as high-pitched warning ( Don’t.

Turn Blue finds the Black Keys getting deep with themselves in several ways; Auerbach recently told Rolling Stone that the band set out to make a singles-bereft "Headphone record," and he's alluded elsewhere that his messy, allegation-laden divorce proceedings-which, in a elf touch, once was believed to include a lock of Bob Dylan's. hair-lent the album a "melancholy" vibe. Appropriately, Turn Blue sounds distant and subdued, a murky-sounding collection of '70s stoner-rock facsimiles and swirling gray tones that, for the most part, are.

Produced by Patrick Carney, Dan Auerbach & Danger Mouse.

Album · 2014 · 11 Songs. From the spacey opener "Weight of Love", which pulls out a grandiose Pink Floyd-style guitar solo before the vocal even starts, it's clear that The Black Keys are thinking big. The album's '70s classic rock vibe gives the Keys a bigger, more cosmic sound, while studio wizard Danger Mouse wraps electronic swirls around Dan Auerbach's mountain of guitars. And just when we're into the psychedelic groove, the soulful strut of "Gotta Get Away" proves the duo's roadhouse R&B roots are still right there. Turn Blue The Black Keys.

Turn Blue, the 2014 successor to their down-and-dirty international blockbuster El Camino, is one of those trips, a churning psychedelic excursion that slowly pulses in any color you like. Those colors spread out slow and low as Turn Blue gets underway via "Weight of Love," sounding not at all unlike Pink Floyd's "Breathe in the Air," a deliberate comparison the Keys return to often throughout the album, letting it decorate fleeting moments and infuse full songs ("Bullet in the Brain," the first single pulled from the LP, hits many.

Turn Blue marks the fourth consecutive Black Keys album in which Danger Mouse had his hands at least partially in the production. But this is the album where Danger Mouse essentially assumes an honorary group member's seat, no longer tweaking here and advising there but truly contributing as a third Black Key. His eerie, poppy, atmospheric fingerprints can be found all over nine of this LP's 11 tracks, with the remaining two songs being self-produced. Therefore, this is the album where a lot of long-time Black Keys fans get lost in the (space particle) dust, likely feeling abandoned.

Performer – Dan Auerbach, Patrick Carney. Producer – Danger Mouse (tracks: 1 to 6, 8 to 10), The Black Keys. Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards, Other – Dan Auerbach. Written-By – B. Burton, D. Auerbach, P. Carney. Gatefold cardboard sleeve, includes a fold-out poster.

Turn Blue does a bunch of moving around itself, reveling in styles from soft psych and broiling hard rock while expanding to greater heights through multi-tracking and ghostly ooh-ooh vocals. El Camino was the sound of The Black Keys flexing their muscles as they reached for that sword, but Turn Blue is the sound of The Black Keys baring their soul and testing the parameters.
