Dan Auerbach debuts 'Waiting On A Song' video

Today, Dan Auerbach premiered his music video for “Waiting on A Song”. The song is the title track off his forthcoming album, Waiting on A Song due June 2nd on Easy Eye Sound. Says Auerbach: “Not only does the video evoke the feeling of the song, but it also pays tribute to the great tradition of Nashville songwriters. It was fun to have John Prine and Pat McLaughlin have cameos in the video as I wrote the song with them. It also has appearances by other Nashville songwriters, like Michael Heeney and Luke Dick, as well as David Ferguson who was the executive producer on the album with me.” Added director Bryan Schlam about his inspiration: “When I first heard ‘Waiting On A Song’, I instantly thought about summer hijinks, basically anything that could happen during the last summer between high school and college. I’ve always wanted to make a movie about that weight, the feeling of moving from childhood to pseudo adulthood.”

Waiting On A Song is the debut release, and marks the launch of Easy Eye Sound, Dan Auerbach’s new record label which will feature soon-to-be-announced releases from other artists and is distributed by Auerbach’s longtime label Nonesuch Records. The label is built equally around Auerbach’s Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, where The Black Keys recorded their last two albums, as well as the collection of famous session musicians that have come to call the studio home. Auerbach says, “Sometimes I feel I created my own Field of Dreams. I built the studio because I knew something was going to happen. I built it to accommodate live musicians playing, and then all of a sudden the best musicians in Nashville show up, and it’s happening.”
