Foreign Keys is the second album released in 1985 by musician Jandek, and his eleventh overall. It finds him returning to the band sound with a vengeance, and is the first all-band Jandek album, with no acoustic numbers whatsoever. It is also an album almost split down the middle between tracks sung by the main artist and those by his female counterpart, assumed to be "Nancy" (it is certainly the same vocalist from "Nancy Sings" on Chair Beside a Window).
