The Black Keys plan to hole up in a North Michigan studio this winter to begin recording the follow-up to their Grammy-nominated ‘El Camino’ and eighth studio album overall. “It will just be the two of us in a studio in North Michigan during the winter,” frontman Dan Auerbach tells British radio BBC 6Music. “It’s going to be awesome.”

Auerbach adds that it’s “not a new thing” for the duo to return to the studio so soon after their last record. (‘El Camino’ dropped in December 2011.) “That’s just how we’ve operated for twelve years,” he says. “We’re just doing what we do.”

The Keys will likely continue recording in their adopted hometown of Nashville, Tenn., later in 2013, and Auerbach says they hope to “hook-up” with Danger Mouse for a few tracks that could wind up on the as-yet-untitled disc. Danger Mouse co-produced ‘El Camino’ with Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney.

The Black Keys are up for five trophies at the 2012 Grammy Awards, including  Record of the Year, Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song — all for for ‘Lonely Boy’ — and Album of the Year and Best Rock Album for ‘El Camino.’ Auerbach got an additional nod for Producer of the Year.
