Patrick Carney Producing New Sheepdogs Album

Black Keys drummer collaborating with Rolling Stone Choose the Cover winners

Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney is producing the new Atlantic Records album by the Sheepdogs, winners of Rolling Stone's recent Choose the Cover contest. The as-yet-untitled album will be co-produced by Rolling Stone contributing editor Austin Scaggs with mixing by Tchad Blake and is tentatively scheduled for a late spring release.

"We're recording live in the same room with no headphones," reports Sheepdogs frontman Ewan Currie. "Pat's got great ideas and we all seem to be on the same level." That would make sense – Carney's band is on our current cover.
