Dan Auerbach to Co-Produce Forthcoming JEFF the Brotherhood Album

Well, Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach just can't seem to stay out of Nashville headlines this week, can he? First we heard that he recently produced the legendary Dr. John's forthcoming record, and then he was all, "Nashville's food is great!" to Bon Appétit. So what would the next logical move be? Diving into a project with a revered local fraternal punk-rock duo?

Oh snap.

As noted in this Dallas Observer feature on JEFF the Brotherhood, the next JEFF record "will be co-produced by recent Nashville transplant Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys." (By the by, that DO feature is a relatively solid read.) We hollered at JEFF frontman Jake Orrall to confirm, who said, "Yeah, we're producing with him in his studio. It's soundin' dope." "His studio," of course, is in reference to Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound, where The Black Keys' El Camino and Dr. John's forthcoming album were also tracked.

Auerbach, of course, isn't the first bluesy, ax-wielding frontman-turned-producer to collaborate with the Brothers Orrall. Note to any rock stars looking for a new home base: Come to Nashville, build a studio, produce a JEFF record! Everyone's doing it.
