Watch now: Dan Auerbach shares lonely new track, “King of a One Horse Town”

Easy Eye SoundThe Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach has shared a new song called “King of a One Horse Town,” a cut from his forthcoming solo album, Waiting on a Song.

To accompany the track, Auerbach has released a video documenting the day in the life of a lonely man — the proverbial “king of a one horse town.” You can watch the video now via Pitchfork.com.

“The ‘King of a One Horse Town’ is anyone who’s scared of the outside world,” Auerbach explains. “Anyone who’s afraid to go beyond their own block for fear of failure. It could be a drug dealer. A drunk. A professor. That’s a feeling any of us can relate to.”

Waiting on a Song, Auerbach’s sophomore solo record, will be released June 2.
