Published May 16, 2011Garage rock rabble-rousers the Black Lips caught our attention when they revealed plans to work with Mark Ronson on their upcoming record. Despite its title, recent leak "New Direction" proves they're still the same band.
While Ronson definitely adds a modicum of production sheen to the band's scuzzy rock n' roll, they're still the same Black Lips you've either loved or hated over the last few albums.
"New Direction" can be downloaded here via Rolling Stone. Arabia Mountain will be available on June 7 via Vice Records.
