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.
