UPDATE: Despite a trailer hitting the Internet earlier this month, The Black Keys have quashed any notion that BlakRoc 2 will be released. During an interview with WZGC 92.9 FM (via Consequence of Sound), Keys' Patrick Carney denied that the album will see the light of day anytime soon.
"Blakroc 2 is not coming out soon, although somehow a trailer that was made two years ago without our permission and then recirculated without our permission,” he said. ”We have stuff recorded for it — about eight songs that I guess are done — but those were all recorded two years ago. So there are no plans for Blakroc 2 to be released as an album.”
