Black Keys Offer Free Beefheart

Black Keys

What a great way to start the week this is. Having been working hard all weekend, I woke up this morning to find (through Heather at the excellent Fuelfriends) that The Black Keys are offering up a free download on their Myspace.

Hot on the trail of last month’s Attack & Release, the Danger Mouse produced album that is garnering no end of critical acclaim, the Keys decided that as they had nothing better to do last Thursday they would record a cover of Captain Beefheart’s I’m Glad.

I’m Glad

This dusty cover suits the Keys’ fuzzed out southern rock style perfectly, it could easily have fit anywhere on the last album, or 2006’s Magic Potion.

Go check it out, you won’t regret it, I promise!
