"I still have the recording but I'd never leak it. That's so unprofessional. There are so many songs I've recorded, only to hear other people singing them."
Talking of recording, The Black Keys reckon they'll knock out a follow-up to El Camino fairly quickly. "Pat and I don't practice or rehearse until we go in to make the record so we won't really know what it's going to be like or what's going to happen till we get in the studio and start working on it," explained Dan Auerbach. "We usually start around 11 and then work till three or four in the morning and that's everyday. Our favourite place to be is in the studio."
