Today, The Black Keys release the music video for their new song “Go,” from their upcoming album “Let’s Rock.” The video is directed by Bryan Schlam and finds the band struggling to reconnect after five years apart. Patrick Carney says, “It was great making this video with Bryan, partially because it was filmed at the very type of place it is making fun of,” and Dan Auerbach adds, “The video was fun, but we still haven’t spoken.” Watch the video for “Go” here.
Director Bryan Schlam says about the making of the video, “For “Go” I felt like we needed to address the elephant in the room. Where have the guys been for 5 years? I thought- Let’s send them to the next level of therapy. A retreat. A commune. A place that’s supposed to symbolize peace and unity…and they’ll hate every second of it. It was a challenging video, not only in the task of having Dan and Patrick act in almost every shot – but also in keeping a narrative that feels cinematic and funny at the same time. We tried to balance the two, relying on situational humor and the effortlessly cool vibe of the song.”
