The Black Keys are on the cover of the new issue of Uncut, on sale from May 16. It’s been five years since the band completed a mammoth world tour in support of Turn Blue. Struggling to overcome physical injury, psychological burnout and communication breakdown in its wake, they needed to call a halt. We travel to Nashville, where Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney discuss the ways their lives have changed while they’ve been away, what brought them back together and the anxieties and delights of collaborating again on their brilliant new album, “Let’s Rock”. Elsewhere in the issue, we celebrate The Cure as they prepare to headline Glastonbury, revisit a long-overlooked part of David Bowie's career, meet Jake Xerxes Fussell and pay tribute to Rory Gallagher. There's PPA Arnold, Screaming Trees, The Fall and much more - as well as our free, 15-track CD showcasing the best of the month's new music.

Everyone loves music right? Hands up all of you who do… good, good. For anyone who doesn’t appreciate music (and I’m not being fussy here – from classical through rock to pop and hip-hop) I feel truly sorry for you, as you’re missing out on a wonderful experience.
Music can lift your spirits, push you to higher planes or even bring you down to earth with a bump. The person listening matters just as much as much as the musician – how you perceive, how you feel the music changes the experience. Imagine watching a movie where the musical cues are reversed – the hero is backed by sinister music, and the villain greeted by a triumphal chorus – and think just how strange it would feel.
