|Waiting On A Song is Dan Auerbach’s second solo album, released on his new record 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. As such, he recruited some of Nashville’s most respected players to write and record his latest, including Mark Knopfler, John Prine, Duane Eddy, Jerry Douglas, Pat McLaughlin and 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 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.
