Watch the Black Keys Perform Two Songs on ‘Jools Holland’
The latest episode of the BBC live-performance show ‘Later With Jools Holland’ packed a punch. Not only did Coldplay perform two new songs, but the Black Keys also graced the stage to play their single ‘Fever’ live for the first time. Thank you, Pat and Dan.
Released a month ago, the tune was the first to drop off the duo’s upcoming album ‘Turn Blue,’ which comes out on May 13. The album was co-produced by Danger Mouse, whose presence is highly evident in ‘Fever,’ which features a New Wave, synth-y feel. Even with Dan Auerbach’s familiar vocals, the keyboard melody makes ‘Fever’ sound like a departure from the Keys’ usual bluesy, guitar-soaked sound.
They also performed ‘Gold on the Ceiling’ from their 2011 Grammy-winning album ‘El Camino.’ You can see that here.
Coldplay also performed two of their new songs, ‘Magic’ and the Avicii-produced ‘A Sky Full of Stars.’ You can watch those here.
And we’re not done yet. Damon Albarn performed too, checking in with ‘Mr. Tembo’ from his just-released debut solo album ‘Everyday Robots.’
