This morning nine-time GRAMMY–winner DanAuerbach premiered his music video for “Waiting on A Song” via Rolling Stone. The song is the title track off his forthcoming album, Waiting on A Song due June 2nd on Easy Eye Sound. Says Auerbach: “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.” Added director Bryan Schlam about his inspiration: “When I first heard ‘Waiting On A Song’, I instantly thought about summer hijinks, basically anything that could happen during the last summer between high school and college. I’ve always wanted to make a movie about that weight, the feeling of moving from childhood to pseudo adulthood.” Watch the video for “Waiting on A Song” here.
Today, Dan Auerbach also announces 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 D.C., and Richmond, and tickets are on sale now here.
