Dark denim-clad blues rockers the Black Keys are about to release their 10th LP Delta Kream. Before they drop it in full, they've shared a brand new music video.

"Going Down South" is an R.L. Burnside song, but it's been given the full Keys treatment. The track's accompanying video looks like it's been dipped in rust, adding more authenticity to the recording.

The band's Dan Auerbach said of the song: "That was one of R.L. Burnside's hits! We strayed a little from the original on our version with the falsetto and percussion, but we liked how it sounded in that moment. It's become one of my favourites on the album."

Delta Kream arrives on May 14 through Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch.
