On Tuesday, The Black Keys stopped by BBC’s Maida Vale studios for a live session in support of their new album, Turn Blue, due out May 13th via Nonesuch Records. In addition to performances of “Fever” and “Turn Blue”, the duo debuted the live version of a third track.

“Bullet In The Brain” reflects the more reserved side of The Black Keys, a slow-burning blues-funk hybrid featuring the prominent use of gentle piano and scintillating organ. Sure, there’s several brief flirtations with soaring psych-rock, but the track inevitably settles right back down to Earth, resulting in a kind of emotional ebb and flow that only adds to an already intense ride.
