Release Date: Spring 2017
Black Keys leader Dan Auerbach is prepping his second solo album, a star-studded affair that features legends like guitar icon Duane Eddy, Johnny Cash bassist Dave Roe, Mark Knopfler and Elvis Presley session men Gene Chrisman and Bobby Wood. Co-writers on the record include John Prine and David "Fergie" Ferguson, who engineered Cash's acclaimed American Recordings albums. "It's reflective of the stuff I've listened to my whole life," Auerbach tells Rolling Stone. "It's equal parts Working Man's Dead, Beatles, Lovin' Spoonful. It feels like all that music to me, in a way. Without sounding retro, and it jumps around a little bit. It's acoustic, and high rhythm section horns."
