The Black Keys continue to roll with their El Camino album, and now, they’re taking MTV along for the ride.
On Monday, February 6, at 7:54 p.m. ET on MTV, the band will premiere their brand-new video for “Gold on the Ceiling,” during “MTV First: The Black Keys.” And then, immediately following the clip’s debut, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will sit down for an exclusive 30-minute interview that will stream on MTV.com.
In that interview — filmed last weekend before the Keys’ sold-out show in Berlin, Germany — the dynamic duo discuss their rather improbable rise to fame, the current state of rock music, and what’s next (a new album already?!?). They also answer questions submitted by fans via Twitter.
After the premiere of the “Gold on the Ceiling” video (which features footage from the band’s album release concert, which streamed live on MTV Hive), the clip will go into rotation on mtvU and MTV Hits, and will premiere on MTV.com, VH1.com and AMTV the following morning. The video will also debut on “MTV2′s 120 Minutes With Matt Pinfield” on February 10 as part of a special Grammy-themed episode, and VH1′s “Top 20 Countdown” on February 11.
It all gets underway Monday, February 6, at 7:54 p.m., with the world premiere of the “Gold on the Ceiling” video on MTV, and then rolls on with MTV News’ 30-minute interview following immediately after on MTV.com. It’s been quite a ride for the Black Keys so far, but trust us, you haven’t seen anything yet.
