the black keys

Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys has a new project called The Arcs, and today he debuted a soft lovin’ song titled “Stay In My Corner.” The song comes from The Arcs’ 13-track debut album, Yours, Dreamily . Just like the album title suggests, the new song is quite dreamy. Auerbach’s tender vocals warm you up like a a cozy sweater. With a slow rhythm and a catchy chorus, the song is a sure winner. It sounds like an R&B soul track straight out of the summer of love.

The Arcs’ new album Yours, Dreamily was written and recorded collaboratively by the band: Dan Auerbach, Leon Michels (Truth & Soul Records, El Michels Affair), Richard Swift (The Shins, Starflyer 59), Homer Steinweiss (Menahan Street Band, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings), Nick Movshon (Menahan Street Band, Amy Winehouse), Kenny Vaughan (McBride & The Ride), and Mariachi Flor de Toloache. Each musician contributes to the album both vocally and instrumentally. Yours, Dreamily was co-produced by Auerbach and Michels. The album was recorded in a short two weeks across informal sessions in Los Angeles, New York City, and Nashville.

The Arcs’ Yours, Dreamily is set for release on September 4 via Nonesuch Records. You can preorder the album here.
