WATCH: New Dan Auerbach Video “King of a One Horse Town”

With the release of his second solo album, Dan Auerbach has released the second video from the set, for the song "King Of A One Horse Town."

The clip depicts a long-haired man (not Auerbach) walking, driving and gazing at mountains while the song -- a vibey, acoustic-guitar driven piece -- plays.

In a statement, Auerbach says the song is about "anyone who's scared of the outside world. Anyone who's afraid to go beyond their own block for fear of failure. It could be a drug dealer. A drunk. A professor. That's a feeling any of us can relate to."

"King Of A One Horse Town" follows the album's first single, "Shine On Me." Waiting For A Song is due out June 2 and includes co-writes with John Prine, Duane Eddie, Pat McLaughlin and Jerry Douglas. It comes eight years after Auerbach's first solo album, Keep It Hid.

Auerbach has announced one concert, May 12 in New York, but not a full tour yet to support the album.

"The King of a One Horse Town is anyone who's scared of the outside world. Anyone who's afraid to go beyond their own block for fear of failure. It could be a drug dealer. A drunk. A professor. That's a feeling any of us can relate to."
