The Black Keys debuted their video for “Fever” off their eighth album Turn Blue and I feel flu-y (or is it the Spirit?) just watching it. Dan Auerbach is peddling some televangelism and he looks so seedy and sweaty that I think I’m coming down with something.
People are speaking in tongues, getting Holy Spirit-induced seizures, and waving bibles, which we can assume is just another Thursday on WTBK:
The video was directed by Theo Wenner, the son of Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner. If you call the phone number he flashes on the screen, you get a recording of someone (possibly Dan?) calling record stores and pitching their new record. Turn Blue comes out May 13th.
