Dan Auerbach shares new video and single

Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, shares his new video for the single "King Of A One Horse Town"

Today, Dan Auerbach, of The Black Keys has shared the video for “King of a One Horse Town”. The clip was directed by Aaron Hymes, and follows a day in the life of a “king of a one horse town,” who Auerbach describes as “anyone who’s scared of the outside world. Anyone who’s afraid to go beyond their own block for fear of failure. It could be a drug dealer. A drunk. A professor. That’s a feeling any of us can relate to.”

Waiting On A Song is Auerbach’s follow-up to 2009’s Keep It Hid and is a love letter to Nashville. As such, he recruited some of Nashville’s most respected players to write and record his latest, including John Prine, Duane Eddy, Jerry Douglas, Pat McLaughlin as well as Bobby Wood and Gene Chrisman of the Memphis Boys. Auerbach said about working with his musical heroes: “Living in Nashville has definitely changed the way I think about music and the way that I record it. I didn’t have all of these resources before. I am working with some of the greatest musicians that ever lived.”

Dan Auerbach will partner with SiriusXM’s The Spectrum (Ch 28) on May 12th for a full-band performance which will broadcast live from Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg starting at 9PM ET (6PM PT), and will be rebroadcast at 12AM ET (9PM PT). “SiriusXM Presents Dan Auerbach at Music Hall of Williamsburg” will give listeners an exclusive preview of his second solo album, Waiting On A Song, which will be released on June 2nd via his new label, Easy Eye Sound.

Dan Auerbach moved to Nashville from his native Akron, Ohio in 2010 and with this release, his first solo album in eight years, it is clear that he has made Music City his home. During the summer of 2016, taking a break from the non-stop touring he’d done with The Black Keys and the Arcs, he finally got acquainted with the city he loves so much, as well as the world-class musicians who live there, and subsequently collaborated with some of Nashville’s heavyweights. Of the process he reveals, “They’d come over, and we’d be in a little room in my house with the door closed, and we’d just write. Monday through Wednesday we’d write, and then Thursday through Sunday we’d record, every week.” Auerbach wrote seven songs with John Prine, one of which is the title track of the album. Mark Knopfler’s immediately identifiable guitar elevates “Shine on Me” into an anthem. Iconic guitarist Duane Eddy is featured on “Livin’ in Sin” and the cinematic “King of a One Horse Town.”
