Rock superstars in residence, The Black Keys’ latest album Turn Blue, which Rolling Stone considers possibly their best LP to date, has spent 13 consecutive weeks on the Billboard top-200 (peaking at number one), and it doesn’t appear the band has any plans of slowing down. Next month they start the US portion of their Turn Blue World Tour, but if you were hoping to see the now local heroes perform in Music City anytime soon, we regret to inform you that you’ll have to wait until Dec. 8th when they play Bridgestone Arena with rock ’n’ roll soul diva St. Vincent. It’s never too early to get a tickets to The Keys, and they range in price from $42.92-$89.86, so snap up a pair now.
Luckily they’ve released a short film for one of our favorite tracks on the new record, “Weight of Love”, so you won’t have to wait until the winter to get something new from them. It’s directed by Theo Wenner, who was also behind the camera for the LP’s first video “Fever”, which you can watch here. The band and his latest creation is meant to be viewed as a companion piece to the first video, but it is an entirely different animal really. Staring supermodle Lara Stone as the leader of a Manson Family-esque (minus the murder), all-female cult who are depicted at times topless on a anonymous beach somewhere doing cult like things. It’s sort of creepy and has a heavy art house, Andy Warhol and The Factory videography type vibe. See what we’re talking about after the jump and be sure to catch the Nashville via Akron, Ohio duo when they play Music City next!
