Brothers, originally released on May 18, 2010, was largely recorded at the famous Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama. It was a career breakthrough for The Black Keys, receiving critical praise and earning three Grammy Awards, for Best Alternative Album, Best Rock Performance, and Best Recording Packaging for Michael Carney’s design. Upon release, Rolling Stone hailed the album ‘a masterpiece’, and Uncut named them ‘one of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands on the planet’.

The duo recorded nine of the original Brothers songs in what was now "a remote recording in a historic room that had been gutted", Auerbach recalls, adding that the location contributed to the vibe of Brothers nonetheless: "You can feel it if you're a musician, the great things that happened in a place. Half of the thing that we love is in our minds, but when we go to these shrines, it gives us inner strength. It feels magical – this is where the music was born".

The album title highlighted a revived bond between the longtime bandmates and childhood neighbours, who had been through challenging times personally and professionally. Carney says, “I was thinking about what the record meant to me – how Dan and I had gone through this shit that brothers go through where you don't get along, but then you do get along and realise it's an unconditional love”. It was reminiscent of one of Auerbach’s favourite Allman Brothers albums, too: "As soon as Pat suggested it, I loved it”.
