"The 23-year-old Southern blues rocker strikes out on his own with a soulful new album produced Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. The record is a real beauty - and a turning-point for King." -NPR Fresh Air
El Dorado, the mythical City of Gold is Spanish legend, the place where dreams come true. As the people willing to take that leap have discovered - the search can’t truly begin until you’ve learned to let go – of the past, of yourself.
The debut solo album from Marcus King, El Dorado, is a revelation. Passionate, penetrating and deeply soulful, El Dorado weaves soul music, gospel, R&B and country into a something modern and classic.
Teaming with producer Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) for sessions at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, the pair co-wrote the 11 songs on El Dorado along with esteemed writers on various tracks including Pat McLaughlin, Paul Overstreet and Ronnie Bowman.
