Atlanta garage rockers the Black Lips teamed up with producer Mark Ronson and Deerhunter guitarist Lockett Pundt for their latest album, Arabia Mountain, due out June 7th. The album marks the first time the band has ever worked with outside producers, and though the sound is more refined, the Black Lips haven't toned down their style or smoothed out their rough edges. Ronson, who is best known for producing hits by Lily Allen, Adele and Amy Winehouse, brings out the best in the band's rhythm section, resulting in rocking psychedelic rock songs with a danceable swing. You can get a sneak preview of Arabia Mountain by downloading "New Direction," a tuneful British Invasion-style number with a brisk, uptempo beat.
