Dan Auerbach Makes Austin City Limits Solo Debut And Kicks Off Easy Eye Revue Tour On February 10th

On February 10th, multiplatinum artist Dan Auerbach will make his first appearance as a solo artist on Austin City Limits, the longest-running music television show in history, to perform music from his first solo release in 8 years, Waiting On A Song. “You can’t not watch this show without feeling good afterwards,” said ACL executive producer Terry Lickona. “Dan Auerbach has 5 times more creative energy than anyone with half his credits.” Auerbach is an ACL veteran, having performed on the program twice with The Black Keys. Austin City Limits airs weekly on PBS stations nationwide (check local listings here) and full episodes are made available online for a limited time at pbs.org/austincitylimits immediately following the initial broadcast.

Watch the performance via Rolling Stone here.

PBS’s broadcast will coincide with the kick off of Dan Auerbach’s 20-date “Easy Eye Sound Revue Tour,” featuring Robert Finley, Shannon Shaw, and Shannon & the Clams, in Vancouver on February 10th. The North American tour has stops in Brooklyn, Portland, Austin, Seattle, Los Angeles, Nashville and more (full dates below). Shannon & The Clams, the latest signing to Dan Auerbach’s label, Easy Eye Sound, will release their new album Onion on February 16th and open every show on this tour. Each night will also feature performances by fellow Easy Eye Sound artists including Robert Finley, Shannon Shaw and of course, Dan Auerbach, all backed by The Easy Eye Sound house band, which Relix Magazine named “Nashville’s New Wrecking Crew.” Tickets for this tour are on sale now and can be purchased here.

Auerbach has a new monthly music show, “The Easy Hour,” on SirusXM’s The Spectrum (Ch. 28). “The Easy Hour” features Auerbach playing hand-picked tunes from all genres of music from his personal library.  In addition to sharing classics, Auerbach will also introduce some of his favorite new artists in this one-hour program. The new series began on Sunday, January 21, at 8 pm ET, and will feature a new installation every month. Read more about “The Easy Hour” here.

Auerbach’s solo album, Waiting On A Songwhich NPR Music calls “a batch of sparkling pop songs that’s sweet, breezy, and primed for summer,” is out now on Easy Eye Sound, and you can listen to it here. The album is Auerbach’s follow-up to 2009’s Keep It Hid and is his love letter to Nashville. As such, he recruited some of Na­shville’s most respected players to write and record his latestincluding John Prine, Duane Eddy, Jerry Douglas, Russ Pahl, Pat McLaughlin as well as 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.”

Waiting On A Song is the debut release, and marks the launch of Easy Eye Sound, Dan Auerbach’s new record label which will feature releases from other artists and is distributed by Auerbach’s longtime label Nonesuch Records. The next release on Easy Eye Sound will be of legendary bluesman Robert Finley’s new album this fall. Easy Eye Sound is built equally around Auerbach’s Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, where The Black Keys recorded their last two albums, as well as the collection of famous session musicians that have come to call the studio home. Auerbach says, “Sometimes I feel I created my own Field of Dreams. I built the studio because I knew something was going to happen. I built it to accommodate live musicians playing, and then all of a sudden the best musicians in Nashville show up, and it’s happening.”
