The Black Keys - that explosive blues duo of Dan Auerbach and Pat Carney - are recording an album called Blackroc with an eye-popping array of hip-hop talents.

To be released on 27 November - the so-called 'Black Friday' after Thanksgiving - Blackroc will feature the Keys paired with artists such as Ludacris, Q-Tip, Pharoahe Monch, NOE, RZA and more.

Documenting the sessions, The Black Keys have just posted a webisode - this one's number two - showing them in the studio with Mos Def. Check it out below. (And hey, Dan's shaved his beard!)

We're not sure what the track is called, but it sounds 'Mos' promising. You can pre-order Blackroc here.
