The last Black Keys record, "Turn Blue," was released in 2014. Might we see the band again soon? That seems unlikely. Auerbach's enjoying some well-deserved acclaim for "Waiting on a Song," and the duo's drummer Patrick Carney, is currently expecting his first child with his fiancee Michelle Branch.
