Now "Lonely Boy" won't be so lonely. The Black Keys have decided to put their most recent albums on Spotify. "After five years of struggling with this we agreed to put the keys songs on Spotify," Keys drummer Patrick Carney tweeted on Monday. "I'd rather people hear our music than not."
Until now, Spotify-using fans of the Akron, Ohio band have been relegated to only six of their eight studio releases, from 2002's The Big Come Up all the way to 2010's Brothers. The holdouts have been 2011's Danger Mouse-produced El Camino and their most recent effort, 2014's Turn Blue. (The band did release singles off those records to Spotify however, including the hits "Fever" and "Lonely Boy," their most popular song on the entire service at over 100 million spins.)
At press time both Turn Blue and El Camino had been made available, though a disclaimer was still displaying at the top of the band's profile. A Spotify representative declined to comment, but CEO/founder Daniel Ek and Spotify's official account did re-tweet Carney's announcement.
