The Black Keys are officially back, dropping Let’s Rock, their first album in five years.

The rock duo produced the stripped-down album themselves at guitarist Dan Auerbach’s Nashville studio. It’s their first release since 2014 and the first since 2006 without help from producer Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton.

Earlier this week, Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney addressed the internet rumors that they secretly hated each other, saying the five-year hiatus came because “you just need the space”.
