The Black Keys Release Cover of R.L. Burnside’s ‘Going Down South’

    The Black Keys have shared a cover of R.L. Burnside’s ‘Going Down South’. It’s the second offering from their upcoming album Delta Kream, which arrives on May 14 (via Nonesuch) and includes a previously released rendition of John Lee Hooker’s ‘Crawling Kingsnake’. Check out a Ryan Nadzam–directed visual for the new single below.

    “That was one of R.L. Burnside’s hits!” Dan Auerbach said in a statement. “We strayed a little from the original on our version with the falsetto and percussion, but we liked how it sounded in that moment. It’s become one of my favorites on the album.”
