Billboard // Black Keys Add Two Previously Unreleased Songs to Deluxe Edition of 'Brothers'
The Black Keys have added two previously-unreleased tracks to the new reissue of their 2010 Brothers album.
The offerings include the ominous blues grind "Keep My Name Outta Your Mouth" and trippy instrumental "Black Mud Part II."
The just-released anniversary edition of the group's Grammy-winning sixth studio album is available in a deluxe limited-edition 7" box set, 2-LP set or CD box set with the newly remastered tracks, which also include the swinging "Chop and Change," previously featured on the Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack; the digital version of the album is available now.
The deluxe box set also includes a 60-page book with photos from the duo's archives, new liner notes written by longtime Rolling Stone writer David Fricke and a limited-edition poster. According to a release, the Brothers reboot is the first in a planned annual series of archival releases. Mostly recorded at the famed Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama, Brothers was a breakthrough for the Ohio band, earning Grammy Awards for best alternative album, best rock performance and best recording packaging and featuring the singles "Tighten Up" and "Howlin' For You."

MXDWN // The Black Keys Share Two Unreleased Tracks from Breakthrough Album Brothers “Keep My Name Outta Your Mouth” and “Black Mud Part II”
American rock duo The Black Keys have shared two previously unreleased songs from their 2010 breakout album Brothers, in honor of its recent 10th anniversary. These two new songs, “Keep My Name Outta Your Mouth” and “Black Mud Part II,” will be included on their 7″ vinyl boxset, double LP set and deluxe CD release, which are all available here.
“Keep My Name Outta Your Mouth” is a rougher blues rock song, with some dark, slightly post-punk inspired guitar riffs and light melodic touches added throughout. Dan Auerbach’s vocals channel the blues as well, while the track’s production features a rough garage rock feel.
