Dan Auerbach has shared the music video for “King of a One Horse Town”.
The video follows a day in the life of a “king of a one horse town,” who Auerbach describes as “anyone who’s scared of the outside world. 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.”
You can watch the video below.
The song is taken from Waiting On A Song – Auerbach’s follow-up to 2009’s Keep It Hid – which will be released on June 2 via his new label, Easy Eye Sound.
The tracklisting for Waiting On a Song is:
“Waiting On A Song”
“Livin’ In Sin”
“Shine On Me”
“King Of A One Horse Town”
“Never In My Wildest Dreams”
“Stand By My Girl”
