Ohio Players is set to be an album unlike any of the band’s others, featuring collaborations with friends and colleagues, including Beck, Noel Gallagher, Dan the Automator, Greg Kurstin, Juicy J, Lil Noid, and others. Listeners have gotten a taste of what to expect from the new project with the lead single, “Beautiful People (Stay High),” that recently reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart and AAA Airplay charts, and additional offerings “This Is Nowhere” and “I Forgot to Be Your Lover.” Based on these releases, Stereogum comments, “The Black Keys are entering another pop crossover phase.” In its four-star review, Mojo said, “This is the most streamlined and tunes-packed Black Keys album since El Camino. The sound of a band rejuvenated.” Pre-order Ohio Players here.
