“Shine On Me” – Dan Auerbach ft Mark Knopfler [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

You only got a couple miles to go
If you’re trying to drive me insane
I saw you crack a smile about a week ago
In the middle of the pouring rain

I climb the cliffs of dover to go drive out in the sun
I’m like a four leaf clover cause I hide from every one

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

When I get up I gotta get me a plan
To do whatever I can I suppose
I’m already working for my uncle sam
You know he’s got me counting Cheerios

Crying on my shoulder, I’m allergic to the tears
Trying for the solider to pretend for all these years

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

Gotta keep my Ray-Bans on so my eyes won’t burn
If I can shed no light upon my number one concern

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

Dan Auerbach has shared an alien-filled music video for “Shine On Me,” the first single from his upcoming solo studio album, Waiting On A Song. Watch it above, via YouTube.

Directed by Steven Mertens, the entertaining video shows Dan being abducted by aliens to compete in a demolition derby in space. Upon winning first place, he reaps in the luxury of being famous and having a sweet spaceship limousine.

Dan shared information about the upbeat track with NPR, saying he:

could hear Mark Knopfler in my mind. I’d never met him before, but I decided to call him anyway to see if he would add a guitar part to it. I gave him no instructions — just told him to do whatever he felt. He sent it back two days later with that rhythm guitar part on it and it was perfect! And that guitar sound couldn’t be mistaken for anyone else. I’m so grateful for his contribution.

Waiting On A Song is scheduled to be released on June 2, 2017 through his new record label, Easy Eye Sound. Pick it up on Amazon.
