The Black Keys will release their new album, El Camino on Dec. 6, via Nonesuch Records. They have a super-creative approach to letting everyone about the release of El Camino, which so far has included the selling of an ... El Camino. They started with an ad in the newspaper of their hometown, Akron, Ohio (Akron Beacon Journal) that reads "Priced to sell - Grab the Keys and go! Contact Pat or Dan at (330) 510-1206." A call to the number gives a message from Patrick Carney who's acting as a used car salesmen. They also have a video above, with the same creative ... vehicle (ahem) for story telling. The video features comedian Bob Odenkirk who may know from (Troy McClure vibe here) from "Mr. Show" and "Breaking Bad." Check it all out at http://wannabuyavan.com/
El Camino was produced by Danger Mouse and The Black Keys, and recorded at singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound studio in the the spring of 2011.
There's also a Black Keys tour shaping up for 2012 El Camino will be the follow up the the Black Keys album Brothers, which was released in 2010.
