The Black Keys – Beautiful People: 13th Floor New Song Of The Day

The Black Keys kick off the new year with the release of their new single “Beautiful People (Stay High)” – available now on all streaming platforms.

Here’s the blurb with more:

The Black KeysThe song arrives alongside the announcement of the multiple-Grammy Award-winning, Akron, OH natives’ twelfth studio album Ohio Players, out April 5 via Nonesuch/Warner Records.

Written by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney with longtime friends Dan “The Automator” Nakamura and Beck, the celebratory, joyful “Beautiful People (Stay High)” is one of several songs on the album that feature collaborations between the band and various additional friends and colleagues, including Noel Gallagher, Greg Kurstin, and others.

Speaking on the collaborative nature of the album, Carney shares, “We had this epiphany: ‘We can call our friends to help us make music.’ It’s funny because we both write songs with other people – Dan all the time [as a solo artist and producer], me when I’m producing a record. That’s what we do.”

“What we wanted to accomplish with this record was make something that was fun,” Carney says. “And something that most bands20 years into their career don’t make, which is an approachable, fun record that is also cool.”
