Beck’s association with The Black Keys goes as far back as 2003, when Patrick Carney gave Beck a bootleg of their album from that year, Thickfreakness at a Saturday Night Live. 

“Who’s going to listen to that s***? Beck did,” Carney stated. “And he invited us on tour a few weeks later, which was our first big break”. 

Speaking earlier this year, Carney also hailed Beck as “the lynch pin in the new evolution of The Black Keys”. 

Carney was referring to Beck’s contributions to the band’s upcoming album, which is due to arrive at some stage next year.

Carney also praised another musician Noel Gallagher recently, who has reportedly written new tracks with the band.

“He’s hilarious and super talented, We were referring to him as ‘The Chord Lord’ because he’s just a perfectionist with it”, Carney said of Gallagher. More on this here.
