The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach Announces Solo Debut, Tour Dates

By |

The Black Keys' guitarist Dan Auerbach has announced his solo debut, Keep It Hid, will come out February 10th on Nonesuch. Auerbach steps outside his comfort zone, tackling drums, keyboards and six-strings on the disc, which is a bit of a family affair — his uncle James Quine contributes guitar to "Street Walkin," and his father originally wrote "Whispered Words." "This record is a mixture of things I like to listen to, psychedelia, soul music, country harmonies," Auerbach says in a statement. He worked on the album while recording and touring behind the Keys' Danger Mouse-produced Attack & Release, ultimately recording at his Akron Analog studio. "I wanted a live, organic sound," he adds. "Nothing was too plotted or planned, just a lot of spontaneity."
