—Mac Rebennack—will release Locked Down, a startling album that marks a significant departure from his recent efforts, on April 3, 2012. The new album, produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, will be Dr. John's first for Nonesuch Records.

It's an entirely new approach for the iconic Dr. John, featuring as it does his collaboration with Auerbach and a band of young musicians Auerbach hand-picked to make Locked Down at his studio Easy Eye Sound in Nashville. “It was way cool cutting this record with Dan and the crew he put together for it," says Rebennack. “It's reel HIP."

For his part, Auerbach says about the collaboration: “Mac inspired me every single day we were in the studio together—musically, spiritually, cosmically...something special seemed to be happening and everyone involved could sense it. For my money, Mac's one of the greatest who ever was and who ever will be...I'm so honored to have had this opportunity to work with him."
