New Release And Video: Dan Auerbach – Waiting On A Song

Dan Auerbach has unveiled the music video for his new single Waiting On A Song. The song is the title-track from his forthcoming album, due out June 2nd on Easy Eye Sound.

About the single, Auerbach states, “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”

Waiting On A Song is Auerbach’s follow-up to 2009’s Keep It Hid – The Black Keys frontman’s 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 has announced tour dates opening for John Prine, with whom he wrote the title track off Waiting On A Song.  Auerbach will open for Prine in Charleston, Charlotte, Washington DC, and Richmond, and tickets are on sale now here
