Dan Auerbach will release his sophomore solo album, “Waiting On A Song”, on June 2nd, and the Black Keys frontman. The new album, which has been described as “a love letter to Nashville,” features collaborations with John Prine, Mark Knopfler, Duane Eddy, Jerry Douglas, Pat McLaughlin and the Memphis Boys’ Bobby Wood and Gene Chrisman.

“Living in Nashville has definitely changed the way I think about music and the way that I record it,” Auerbach said upon the album’s announcement. “I didn’t have all of these resources before. I am working with some of the greatest musicians that ever lived.”

As frontman of The Black Keys, Dan Auerbach has spent the last couple decades glancing longingly backward for inspiration. The band’s consistently Grammy-snagging sound has drawn largely from garage rock and the blues, but Auerbach’s new solo album, Waiting On A Song, is a joyous reminder that there’s more than one way to be retro. Rather than relying on the stomping beats and big riffs of The Black Keys, Waiting On A Song wallows in a laidback vibe that spotlights a quality always present, yet never dominant in Auerbach’s main project: his knack for crafting immaculate, indelible pop.
