Dan Auerbach – King of a One Horse Town

Away from The Black Keys and his side-project The Arcs, Dan Auerbach is an artist in his own right. His debut solo album Keep It Hid was well-received back in 2009 and now he’s back with a new album Waiting On A Song which will be released via his new label Easy Eye Sound on 2nd June. ‘King of a One Horse Town’ is the second single from the album and marries a pleasant acoustic rhythm with strings and organs which give a distinctive cinematic feel to the song. It surpasses first single ‘Shine On Me’ and restores my hope for his upcoming album.
