The Black Keys' latest album Turn Blue hasn't even been out four months yet, but the duo is already itching to get back in the studio. 

Drummer Patrick Carney tells Billboard that if he and frontman Dan Auerbach had their way, they'd start work on a new album in January. 

The Keys are set to kick off the North American portion of their "Turn Blue" world tour this Friday in Columbus, Ohio.  The trek will keep them busy through the end of December, but they do have some time off to possibly hit the studio before they start the European leg in February.
