"Generally, fool's gold is made of iron or copper pyrites that are often mistaken for gold," says The Arcs frontman Dan Auerbach of the track. "It has the same thrilling discovery, the same shiny luster and perceived weight as gold, but it isn't gold and when all is said and done, it has the same value as a hunk of s***. It's always been so easy to be a fool."

Auerbach has previously worked with Danger Mouse, a.k.a. Brian Burton, on The Black Keys' hit single "Tighten Up." Burton also produced three of The Black Keys' albums: Attack & Release, El Camino, and their most recent release, Turn Blue.

30th Century Records Compilation Volume I will be released December 18.
