    Dan Auerbach Debuts Music Video for "Stand By My Girl" from New Album, "Waiting on a Song"

    Dan Auerbach debuted the music video for "Stand By My Girl," a song from his new album, Waiting on a Song, via Stereogum. The video, about a femme fatale and the men who love her, was directed by Allister Ann, who said of the process, "Sometimes you just get lucky. A song, an artist and a vision come together and seem to align perfectly, and when that happens, it's pure magic." You can watch it below.

    Auerbach's new solo album, Waiting on a Song, which NPR Music calls "a batch of sparkling pop songs that's sweet, breezy, and primed for summer," is out now on Easy Eye Sound. 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 latest, including 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."

    Recently, Dan Auerbach, appeared on CBS This Morning: Saturday for an in-depth interview with host Anthony Mason about his new album, from which he played three songs, "Shine on Me," "Waiting on a Song," and "Never in My Wildest Dreams." Auerbach also premiered his music video for "Waiting on a Song" via Rolling Stone and appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert recently to perform the songs "Shine on Me" and "King of a One Horse Town." Additionally, NPR Music premiered the video for Waiting on a Song's first single, "Shine on Me." Auerbach also shared the music video for "King of a One Horse Town" via Pitchfork.

    Dan Auerbach will open for John Prine, with whom he wrote the title track of Waiting on a Song, in September and November in Charleston, Charlotte, Washington D.C., and Richmond. Additionally, Auerbach will perform at The Growlers Six festival in San Pedro, California, on Saturday, October 28. Tickets for these performances on sale now and are available here.

    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."

    "Though the exact day is not known, it was fifteen years ago that Lake Street Dive became a band," says Rachael Price. "McDuck wrote our name on the chalkboard of a practice room and it was done. We didn’t know each other that well. We had zero idea of what kind of music we would play. We certainly didn’t know that fateful day marked the beginning of the longest platonic double date of my life. We have been through so much together ... Happy Fifteenth Bandiversary, y'all!"
