    Marcus King announced a new solo studio album, ‘Young Blood,’ produced by Dan Auerbach and featuring lead single “Hard Working Man.”

“Rescue Me” came accompanied by a live performance video filmed at Easy Sound. The guitarist was backed by drummer Chris St. Hilaire and bassist Nick Movshon, who each contributed to Young Blood.

“‘Rescue Me’ cuts a little deeper than the rest for me.” Marcus explained to American Songwriter before adding, “This song is a literal cry for help, one of the least metaphorical tracks on the record and a memory that’s difficult to relive each night but is important to remember. This is also one of the first times I collaborated with our good friend, the amazingly talented artist/ writer Andrew Gabbard.”
