Today, eight-time GRAMMY–winner, Dan Auerbach announces the 20-date “Easy Eye Sound Revue Tour,” featuring Robert Finley and Shannon Shaw, with special guests Shannon & the Clams. The extensive North American tour will kick off on February 10 in Vancouver with stops in Brooklyn, Portland, Austin, Seattle, Los Angeles, Nashville and more (full dates below). Shannon & The Clams, the latest signing to Dan Auerbach’s label, Easy Eye Sound, will release their new album, produced by Auerbach, via the label in February and open every show on this tour. Each night will also feature performances by fellow Easy Eye Sound artists including Robert Finley, Shannon Shaw and of course, Dan Auerbach, all backed by the The Easy Eye Sound house band, which Relix Magazine named “Nashville’s New Wrecking Crew.” Tickets for this tour will go on sale on November 3rd at 10am Local Time and can be purchased here.

Dan Auerbach, will also tape a performance of PBS’s lauded and long-running Austin City Limits on Monday, November 27, in support of his acclaimed new solo album Waiting On A Song. Information on how to get free passes for this taping will be posted a week before on ACL’s Facebook and Twitter. Additionally, Auerbach will open for John Prine, with whom he wrote the title track off Waiting On A Song, in November in Washington D.C. and Richmond. Tickets for these two dates are on sale now and are available here.

A new 7” Easy Eye Sound sampler, Good Sound Comes Back Around Vol. 1, will be released on Friday, November 24th, as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday initiative. The new 7” is a preview of upcoming releases on Auerbach’s label and features “Cellophane Angel,” an exclusive and unreleased track Auerbach recorded with the Preservation Hall Band, on Side A, and Robert Finley’s “Medicine Woman”— the first single on Goin’ Platinum! due December 8th— and Sonny Smith’s “Pictures of You” on Side B. The 7” will be available at participating record stores, and more information can be found here.

Auerbach’s new solo album, Waiting On A Song, which NPR Music calls “a batch of sparkling pop songs that’s sweet, breezy, and primed for summer,” is out now on Easy Eye Sound, and you can listen to it here. The album is Auerbach’s follow-up to 2009’s Keep It Hid and is his love letter to Nashville. As such, he recruited some of Nashville’s most respected players to write and record his latest, including John Prine, Duane Eddy, Jerry Douglas, Russ Pahl, Pat McLaughlin as well as Bobby Wood and Gene Chrisman of the Memphis Boys. Auerbach said about working with his musical heroes: “Living in Nashville has definitely changed the way I think about music and the way that I record it. I didn’t have all of these resources before. I am working with some of the greatest musicians that ever lived.

Waiting On A Song is the debut release, and marks the launch of Easy Eye Sound, Dan Auerbach’s new record label which will feature releases from other artists and is distributed by Auerbach’s longtime label Nonesuch Records. The next release on Easy Eye Sound will be of legendary bluesman Robert Finley’s new album this fall. Easy Eye Sound is built equally around Auerbach’s Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, where The Black Keys recorded their last two albums, as well as the collection of famous session musicians that have come to call the studio home. Auerbach says, “Sometimes I feel I created my own Field of Dreams. I built the studio because I knew something was going to happen. I built it to accommodate live musicians playing, and then all of a sudden the best musicians in Nashville show up, and it’s happening.”
