In total, the duo won three of the five categories in which they were nominated, save for Album Of The Year and Record Of The Year, which went to Mumford & Sons for Babel and Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" featuring Kimbra, respectively. El Camino was co-produced by the Black Keys and GRAMMY winner Danger Mouse. Auerbach won an additional GRAMMY at the 55th GRAMMY Awards for Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical for his work on El Camino and Dr. John's GRAMMY-winning Locked Down, among other recordings.
