The Black Keys will guest star on a forthcoming episode of Comedy Central's Workaholics, reports Entertainment Weekly. The rock duo will play a couple of dirtbags waiting to have a case heard in a small claims court. According to Entertainment Weekly's sources, both Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will sport "oddly long ponytails" on the show. The episode is set to air sometime this summer.

The band signed on to guest star mainly because they are big fans of the show, which follows the adventures of a trio of slackers. (The title is meant to be ironic.) The show used a bit of their recent hit "Lonely Boy" in an episode last fall.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
