Dan Auerbach, frontman for the Black Keys, is set to produce the latest Hanni el Khatib album.
Khatib, speaking with L.A. Weekly, says the pair met in Paris:
"A friend owns a bar in Paris and introduced us when I was deejaying after a show. He went deep into music and started dropping knowledge about all these obscure LA bands. We ended up going back and forth deejaying all night."
The garage rocker also spoke on the sound of the new album, the follow up to 2011's Will the Guns Come Out:
"My new songs lean toward '60s garage but without nostalgia. I want a record that makes sense to me today."
Auerbach recently finished up producing the latest Dr. John album, Locked Down. That LP was released on Tuesday, April 3.
