The Black Keys are paying homage to the Mississippi hill country blues acts they grew up on with a new covers album titled, Delta Kream. The 11-track collection is set for release on May 14 and available to pre-order in all formats.

PRE-ORDER DELTA KREAM, HERE. 

The Ohio duo – Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney – will revisit classics by legendary blues artists that they have loved since they were teenagers, including John Lee Hooker, R. L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Ranie Burnette and Big Joe Williams.

The first single they have shared from the collection is a John Lee Hooker track called “Crawling Kingsnake.” Auerbach recalls first hearing the original version “in high school,” but feels their interpretation is “definitely Junior Kimbrough’s take on it. It’s almost a disco riff!” Listen below.

Auerbach says of the album, “We made this record to honor the Mississippi hill country blues tradition that influenced us starting out. These songs are still as important to us today as they were the first day Pat and I started playing together and picked up our instruments.” 

The Black Keys recorded Delta Kream at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, joined by long-time members of the bands of blues legends including R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. Delta Kream is available to pre-order here.
