''Brothers'' is the fifth studio album by Music/TheBlackKeys, released on May 18, 2010.

Prior to the release of ''Brothers'', The Black Keys were in a CreatorBreakdown from both ends, and a break-up seemed imminent. The first was when singer Dan Auerbach released his solo album ''Keep It Hid'' in February 2009, completely without drummer Patrick Carney's knowledge. Lets just say, he was [[BerserkButton not happy about it]]. Then there was the fact that Carney's [[AwfulWeddedLife wife]] [[GoldDigger took money from him]], [[YourCheatingHeart cheated on him with his best friend]], and [[KickTheDog hated Auerbach and tried to turn Carney against him]]. He had been going through a two-year divorce, where Carney [[TheAlcoholic engaged in heavy drinking]], and had gained 25 pounds. On top of all this was their [[NoHitWonder complete lack of commercial success]]. They never had single that charted, and none of their albums even made the Top 100 (which was even worse considering how poor albums sell in the new millennium). All hope seemed lost for both the Keys and their fans.

[[RelationshipSalvagingDisaster But then they pulled through]]. Carney realized that his anger had been misdirected, and after finally divorcing his wife, they got to work on their fifth studio album, titled ''Brothers'' likely in reference to [[HeterosexualLifePartners themselves]]. Recording sessions primarily took place in the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Sheffield, Alabama. Many blues legends such as Music/BobDylan and Music/TheRollingStones had recorded music there, so it was befitting of their own modern BluesRock style. Notable in that they were the first to record there in over 25 years. [[AndYouThoughtItWouldFail Just when it seemed like they were going to be failures]], they landed their first success. ''Brothers'' was their first album to chart in the Top 100. Where did it chart? ''#3''. How many albums did they sell? It went ''platinum''. ''Brothers'' produced their first radio hit "Tighten Up" which topped the Alternative and Rock charts and cracked the ''Hot 100''. It was nominated for five Grammy awards, and won two ("Best Alternative Music Album" and "Best Rock Performance" for "Tighten Up"). You could say they had to [[EarnYourHappyEnding earn their happy ending]].
