Ready to order? The Black Keys are serving up new music for hungry fans.

The Akron duo’s new album, “Delta Kream,” due May 14, will feature cover songs from Mississippi blues musicians who influenced singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney when they were first starting out.

The first single to be released from the 11-track album is their cover of John Lee Hooker’s 1949 version of “Crawling Kingsnake.” The six-minute song features a slithering groove, a slinky beat and evocative vocals. The band has released a new video for the song.

“Well, I’m a crawling kingsnake, baby,” Auerbach sings. “Crawl up on your door. Crawl up to your window, baby. Crawl up on your floor.”

“Delta Kream” is a tribute to blues from the hill country of northern Mississippi. According to Nonesuch Records, The Black Keys’ 10th studio album celebrates the band’s roots and features the blues standards “that they have loved since they were teenagers, before they were a band.”
