Brothers is the sixth album, and Grammy Award-winner of Best Alternative Music Album, by The Black Keys. It was recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Sheffield, Alabama, The Bunker On Apple in Portland, Oregon, Easy Eye Sound System and Soil of the South Studios in San Diego, California in 2009. The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200, and in January 2011, the album was certified Gold by the RIAA for shipping over 500,000 copies. 

The packaging is designed to resemble a vintage record jacket, with the old Nonesuch logo on the front cover in the lower left, and the words "STEREO SOUND" in the upper right. The album is littered with messages that identify everything. The cover, for example reads: "This is an album by The Black Keys. The name of this album is Brothers". The font used is Cooper Black. When first opened, the label on the disc is almost entirely black. However, the label is heat-sensitive and turns a "whitish" color when played in a disc player for a long enough time. The label can also be revealed by touching the disc.
