The track, which is titled ‘Lasan’, will be the B-side to Kiwanuka’s new single ‘I’m Getting Ready’, which will feature on the singer’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Home Again’, which is set for release on March 12.

Speaking previously about the track, Auerbach said: “It was great – really quick. We went and did it really quick at Ray Davies’ studio. It was nice. Obviously his voice is amazing the songs are cool. The production on that stuff is great too – I like what the guy is doing.”

The Black Keys released their seventh studio album ‘El Camino’ in December last year. Auerbach recently revealed that he and drummer Patrick Carney will be playing UK festivals this summer, but couldn’t reveal which ones as they were “top secret”, and also hinted that they had already begun planning the follow-up to their last LP.

In January this year, Michael Kiwanuka was named as the winner of the BBC’s Sound Of 2012 poll, fending off competition from Frank Ocean and Azealia Banks, who were named in second and third place respectively. He later claimed that winning the gong was a double-edged sword after admitting that although he was pleased with the accolade, it could “come with baggage”.

The Black Keys have just completed their largest UK tour to date.
