The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach will produce Los Angeles rocker Hanni El Khatib's sophomore album, Khatib revealed.
"My new songs lean toward '60s garage but without nostalgia. I want a record that makes sense to me today," he told LA Weekly.
The musician, whose blistering take on vintage blues has much in common with Auerbach's day job, earned notice with last year's "When Will the Guns Come Out," scoring an opening slot with Florence + The Machine and synchs with Nike and HBO's "Eastbound and Down." His next effort is set to be recorded later this year.
