The Black Keys share ‘I Forgot to Be Your Lover’

The song is the second track from Ohio Players

Following the announcement of their upcoming album Ohio Players, due April 5th via Nonesuch/Warner Records, The Black Keys have debuted the second track off the album – a rendition of William Bell’s “I Forgot To Be Your Lover” – that features the band’s good friends Tommy Brenneck and Kelly Finnigan. This track, available now on all streaming platforms, maintains the momentum The Black Keys started with the album’s lead single “Beautiful People (Stay High).”

The reimagined song joins the original tracks on an album unlike any of the band’s others, featuring collaborations among the band’s Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney and various additional friends and colleagues, including Beck, Noel Gallagher, Greg Kurstin, and others.

Earlier this week, The Black Keys were announced as performers for the eighth annual Love Rocks NYC benefit concert as well as performers for the NASCAR Chicago Street Race in Grant Park.

The Black Keys were recently announced as SXSW Music Festival performers. This addition follows the announcement that Auerbach and Carney will be partaking in a special keynote as well as premiering their new documentary This is a Film About The Black Keys during the festival. The documentary traces Auerbach’s and Carney’s remarkable journey from two neighborhood kids jamming in a basement in Ohio to rock ‘n roll superstardom.
