Dan Auerbach managed to carve slot out of his busy minister’s schedule to get to work on his second solo album, which he has released on his new label, Easy Eye Sound Records. Eight years after Keep It Hid, the brains behind Black Keys, and a very active producer (Lana Del Rey, Pretenders, Valerie June, Ray LaMontagne, Bombino), Auerbach conceived of this record, Waiting On A Song as " a love letter to Nashville. " That makes sense: Auerbach left his native town of Akron, Ohio, to set up in Music City in 2010, where he opened his own recording studio, Easy Eye. This second solo record brings in many guests including John Prine, ex-Dire Straits member Mark Knopfler, Duane Eddy, Jerry Douglas, Pat McLaughlin but also Bobby Wood and Gene Chrisman of the Memphis Boys. John Prine plays a major role as the co-writer of seven of the ten songs on the album! A great songwriter who is little-known this side of the Atlantic, but adored by a cult following back home, Prine started as a protégé of Kris Kristofferson, and is anything but a sub-Dylan. Mixing causticity and pure emotion with a rare talent, he has even become known as one of the most under-rated portraitists of his generation. And while his dark humour keeps him safe from any temptations in the direction of soppiness, he also knows how to touch the heart... Like Father John Misty, Dan Auerbach seems nostalgic for the 1970s that saw rock, pop, country, blues, soul and folk swirl together. This makes for a mercurial album, which moves from sunny songs to melancholy ballads. In an era where everything moves a mile a minute, Waiting On A Song takes its time and it could not care less about whether it makes for an easy one-off listen. The leader of the Black Keys and his friends are there to make art, and record songs that will stand the test of time. And with that in mind, this is an album that deserves to be savoured like a welcome siesta, or an enchanting digression...© MD/Qobuz
