The Black Keys release first single from Delta Kream, a cover of John Lee Hooker’s Crawling Kingsnake

The album arrives in May.

The Black Keys have released the first single from their upcoming blues cover album, a cover of John Lee Hooker’s 1949 song Crawling Kingsnake.

The cover showcases the presence of guitarist Kenny Brown and bassist Eric Deaton, who are bolstering the guitar and drums of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney respectively.

You can listen to the cover below. The video for Crawling Kingsnake, directed by Tim Hardiman, was filmed at Jimmy Duck Holmes’ Blue Front Café, “the oldest active juke joint in America.”
