Like so many of us, the Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach has apparently spent the past few weeks watching the Netflix documentary series Making A Murderer and getting righteously pissed at the petty dictators who we’ve put in charge of deciding who goes to prison and who doesn’t. And he’s already written a song about it. Auerbach now leads the new blues-rock band the Arcs; they released their debut album Yours, Dreamily last year. And with that band, he’s just shared “Lake Superior,” a song that explicitly addresses the fucked-up criminal case at the show’s center. When they get around to commercially releasing the song, it’ll be a benefit for the Innocence Project. But you can hear it and read some words about it from the band below.
Yours, Dreamily is out now on Nonesuch. Never, ever talk to police.
