Interesting facts and trivia about Lonely Boy. By Songfacts®.

This is the first single from El Camino, the seventh studio album by American Blues-Rock duo, The Black Keys. The song was one of the first that was recorded for the set and was released on October 26, 2011.

El Camino was recorded in vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, Tennessee. Auerbach told Spin magazine: "Almost every song on the record has a foundation of live drums and guitar together in the room. It's guitar bleeding into the drum mics. It's pretty raw."

The album was co-produced by Danger Mouse, who previously helmed the duo's 2008 album Attack & Release and 2010 single "Tighten Up". Drummer/co-producer Patrick Carney told MTV News: "He's a really good friend of ours, and he's super talented. It's always... Interesting. It's comfortable, but at the same time difficult, because he does push us to do things we normally wouldn't do. I hope it sounds different enough that people see that we're still evolving."
