The Black Keys have created an artform out of album announcements. Last week, The Black Keys announced the album via Mike Tyson's twitter (yes, that Mike Tyson).

Today, the duo, shared the first song called "Fever" from the forthcoming album, which is due out on May 13.  The album will be a follow-up to their Grammy-winning 2011 release El-Camino. 

According to a press release via Billboard:

"Turn Blue" was primarily recorded last summer at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, with Danger Mouse once again aboard to co-produce with Auerbach and Carney. "We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a record -- not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either," says Carney in a statement. "On this record, we let the songs breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds. We're excited for the world to hear 'Turn Blue.'"

Take a listen to "Fever" below and let us know what you think.
