Brian Burton, the producer better known as Danger Mouse, started his own imprint, 30th Century Records, earlier this year as a subsidiary of Columbia Records. The imprint releases 30th Century Records Compilation Volume I on Friday — and it has now shared a new track from the album by Dan Auerbach’s band The Arcs.
“Fools Gold” follows the September debut from the Black Keys founder’s latest project — one of EW’s favorite albums of the year — and keeps up the group’s streak of scuzzed-out, funked-up blues-rock. The Arcs’ contribution to 30th Century Records is just the latest entry in Burton and Auerbach’s professional history, which includes Burton’s production assistance on every Black Keys album since 2008’s Attack & Release. Burton most recently produced tracks on Adele’s 25 and A$AP Rocky’s At.Long.Last.A$AP.
30th Century Records Compilation Volume I also features songs by artists including Autolux and Sam Cohen. Check out “Fools Gold” below.
