Dan Auerbach: NPR Tiny Desk Concert

  • Dan Auerbach: NPR Tiny Desk Concert

    Dan Auerbach returned to NPR's Tiny Desk to bring in the Easy Eye Sound Revue, what host Bob Boilen calls "an explosion of talent." The set includes the title track to Auerbach's album Waiting on a Song and album tracks "Never in My Wildest Dreams" and "Shine on Me," plus a special appearance from "powerhouse" Robert Finley on "Get It While You Can," the opening track to Finley's Dan Auerbach–produced Easy Eye Sound release Goin' Platinum!.

    "It's an abundance of gifted musicians who have all played with a long, long list of legends, including Elvis, Don Williams and John Prine," says Boilen. "Dan Auerbach is a master of ceremonies, a community maker and a great songwriter. His world is one where it's hard to tell if this pool of talent has gathered around to join Dan, or if he's managed to reconnect some old magic in hopes of going along for a great ride himself. Either way we win."
