New Music: Dan Auerbach “Waiting On A Song”


Nine time GRAMMY-winner Dan Auerbach will release Waiting On A Song, his second solo album, on June 2nd via his new label, Easy Eye Sound.

The album is Auerbach’s much anticipated follow-up to 2009’s Keep It Hid and is a love letter to Nashville, filled with songs of sin, dangerous women, beautiful tarnished losers, undying love and equally undying friendship.

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 and Bobby Wood and Gene Chrisman of the Memphis Boys.

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 long-time 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.

“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.”  – Dan Auerbach
