Auerbach recruited Mark  Knopfler of Dire Straits to add a guitar part to the single. “I gave him no instructions — just told him to do whatever he felt,” Auerbach told NPR. “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 will come out June 2 under Auerbach’s new label, Easy Eye Sound.
