So says Patrick Carney...
In an interview with Billboard, The Black Keys' Patrick Carney said that he and Dan Auerbach could return to the studio for a new album as early as January.
On when the new album could be started: "I think if it were up to Dan and I, and we didn't have to consider the fact that we need to complete the full tour circuit, we'd probably be back in the studio in January. I think by the time this record came out we were ready to make another one. We started the band because we wanted to make albums. We wanted to make one record, and then we found out we had to tour. We didn't play our first show 'til after our first record was recorded, so it's always been about making records, and it's been a process in growing to become good performers."
On their planning process: "It's not like we have an idea of what direction we want to go in or anything. I'd like our next record to be... I don't want to go somewhere too pre-planned. We always want to go somewhere different."
On almost losing their #1 debut to Michael Jackson: "We almost got f***ed on that, but it worked out right in the end. Having a No. 1 record, it's a cool thing to have on the Wikipedia page, but it's also a bittersweet thing for Dan and I because so many of our favorite bands deserve that s*** more than we do and never got it. You've just got to take it for what it is -- it's just a sales number, and it has no reflection on the quality, obviously, of the music and has no other significant importance."
