AKRON, Ohio — For the first time since their 2014 album, Turn Blue, The Black Keys have released a new song "Lo/Hi."

The Black Keys, formed in Akron in 2001, have released eight studio albums, winning six Grammy Awards and have headlined festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Governors Ball.

The song was written by and produced by Dan Auerbach and Partrick Carney. The duo recorded the song at Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, Tennessee.

The official YouTube video for the song even includes a brief nod to their Akron origins - check it out below:

Though it's the first song the pair have worked on together in awhile, Auerbach and Carney have been working on projects separately.

Auerbach launched his recording studio in 2017. Recently, Auerbach produced Dee White's debut album, Southern Gentleman, according to Rolling Stone.

Carney has produced and recorded new music with other artists, including co-writing and producing Calvin Johnson's A Wonderful Beast.
