    Black Bayou

    Released October 27, 2023

    Black Bayou, Finley’s third studio album, is a portrait of Louisiana from an insider who’s lived there all his life and coalesces all of the vibrant genres bubbling in the bayou from gospel, blues, rock and roll and more. With this Dan Auerbach-produced album, they created a vivid collection of songs that depict life in North Louisiana, with Finley playing the role of charismatic and knowledgeable tour guide.

    “It’s amazing to realize how much of an impact Louisiana has had on the world’s music,” says Dan Auerbach, “and Robert embodies all of that. He can play a blues song. He can play early rock and roll. He can play gospel. He can do anything, and a lot of that has to do with where he’s from.”

    Keep It Hid 2023 Reissue

    Released September 29, 2023

    Dan Auerbach’s debut solo album Keep It Hid will return to physical formats next month, with the seminal 2009 collection being reissued on vinyl, CD, and limited edition cassette. The fourteen-song debut marked Auerbach’s first major work outside of The Black Keys. The collection spans from echo-laden garage rock ("Heartbroken, In Disrepair") and fuzz-scarred blues ("The Prowl") to haunted Southern soul ("Real Desire") and bittersweet-country comfort ("When The Night Comes"). The album was hailed as “intimate and thrilling” by NPR’s Fresh Air upon its original release, with reviewer Ken Tucker adding it “sounds like a clearing of the throat and mind.” The 2023 reissue of the long-out-of-print Keep It Hid will arrive on September 29, equipped with new album art and six updated vinyl variants, as well as a limited-edition cassette release for the first time.

    Jon Muq is a singer-songwriter born in Uganda and living in Austin, Texas.

    Yellow Peril

    Released June 23, 2023

    On his debut album ‘Yellow Peril,’ Nat Myers carries on the traditions of the blues while simultaneously shattering every stereotype that comes with them. A Korean-American poet raised on hardcore and hip-hop, Myers found his calling early in the hundred-year-old sounds of artists like Blind Lemon Jefferson and Charley Patton. Drawing from his heroes, he uses the blues to shine a light on the injustice he sees around him, and specifically the dark wave of Asian hate that accompanied the global pandemic. Produced by Dan Auerbach, who oversaw sessions for the first time in his own Nashville home (which acts as another instrument on the record), 'Yellow Peril' is available everywhere June 23, 2023.

    Electrophonic Chronic

    Released January 27, 2023

    'Electrophonic Chronic' features The Arcs full original line-up of Dan Auerbach, Leon Michels, Nick Movshon, Homer Steinweiss and Richard Swift. The collection was recorded between Nashville - at Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound studio - and New York at Electric Lady and Leon Michels' Diamond Mine. The album's cover art was illustrated by El Oms, whose artwork also dons the cover of the group's 2015 debut Yours, Dreamily. Like much of Electrophonic Chronic it stands as a tribute to Swift, their bandmate and brother gone too soon. "This new record is all about honoring Swift," Auerbach concludes. "It’s a way for us to say goodbye to him, by revisiting him playing and laughing, singing. It was heavy at times, but I think it was really helpful to do it.”

    The new album, 'Electrophonic Chronic,' is available everywhere January 27, 2023.

    Released October 28, 2022

'El Bueno Y El Malo' is their most epic journey yet: Working with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach at his Easy Eye Sound Studio in Nashville, they’ve crafted ten vivid compositions that highlight their intimate guitar playing, where one brother’s rhythms and the other brother’s melodies twine around each other so that they become inextricable.

    Strange Time To Be Alive

    Released August 19, 2022

    Alabama's native son, Early James, will release his sophomore album, Strange Time To Be Alive, on August 19, 2022. The lyrical wordsmith conjures the ghosts of great southern gothic writers from Eudora Welty to William Faulkner, while channeling the haunted spirits of Tom Waits and Townes Van Zandt. The album evokes a timeless amalgam of forsaken blues, wistful folk and Tin Pan Alley crooning, anchored by the singer’s unmistakable voice that sways from gravel-filled shouts to pained, forlorn whispers – and songs that tread in the waters of darkly themed broken hearts.

    On the road again since August 2021, Early James will continue touring consistently through 2022. Confirmed upcoming tour dates are with The Black Keys and The Ghost of Paul Revere. Previously, Early James has played Newport Folk and toured with The Lone Bellow, The Marcus King Band, Zachary Williams, and Shovels & Rope.

    Something Borrowed, Something New: A Tribute To John Anderson

    Released August 5, 2022

    There are giants that walk among us. John Anderson is truly a country legend, as his remarkable career has spanned over a staggering 40+ years, starting in 1977 to his last release, Years, produced by Dan Auerbach in 2020. In that period, Anderson has charted more than 40+ singles on the Billboard Country Music Charts, including an impressive five number ones in numerous decades. In 2014 Anderson was elected into the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame. His wake of influence throughout his recording career has become that of legend.

    It was during the recording of Years for Easy Eye Sound that noted artists, running the gamut from peers to the influenced, started coming out of the woodwork to heap praise on his body of work. From those many encounters, Dan Auerbach hatched the idea of a tribute to the genius of John Anderson. The herculean talents of everyone from Luke Combs to John Prine, from Eric Church to Tyler Childers, Nathaniel Rateliff to Brothers Osborne, and Ashley McBryde to Gillian Welch & David Rawlings and many more all came together to pay tribute to John and his remarkable contributions in this stunning album.

    Rich White Honky Blues

    Released June 17, 2022

    Blues styles have been used and adapted extensively throughout country music’s recorded history. In fact along with elements of Southern rock, the core of Country Music Hall of Fame member Hank Williams, Jr.’s sound has always been the blues, and his latest album, Rich White Honky Blues, is a sonic testimony to that. Having used these same blues elements on his early albums, this raw and gritty new studio album returns to those roots. The project came together this past summer over three hot days in Nashville, Tennessee inside producer Dan Auerbach’s legendary studio, Easy Eye Sound. The vibrant and raucous album was recorded live with some of the finest blues session players in the country with Kenny Brown (guitar), Eric Deaton (bass) and Kinney Kimbrough (drums) all joining Bocephus and Auerbach in the studio. Never one to rest on his laurels, even after 56 studio albums and induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, the acclaimed singer/songwriter and musician is still finding new creative ground to explore.
