The Ohio-bred blues-rock duo seems perennially down for a bit of ex-girlfriend bad-mouthing. “Lonely Boy,” the lead single off upcoming seventh album “El Camino,” comes across as a vulnerable anthem, with a chorus that goes, “I got a love that keeps me waiting/I’m a lonely boy.”
“Lonely Boy”, the low-fi video featuring a man dancing awkwardly. That’s all you see – there’s not some grand cinematic scale to the video! It’s just something to watch while getting acquainted with some brand new Black Keys sounds – who needs visuals with a point, when you’ve got a song this good?
Listen to the kickass first track off the Keys’ hotly anticipated, newly rock-driven album El Camino.
