This Waiting on a Song track finds Dan Auerbach afraid of stepping outside his comfort zone. "'The King of a One Horse Town' is anyone who's scared of the outside world," the Black Keys frontman explained. "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."
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
