Marcus King Shares ‘Say You Will’ Single
Guitarist Marcus King unveiled “Say You Will,” the latest track shared from his debut solo album, El Dorado. King’s El Dorado, which was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, comes out through Fantasy Records on January 17, 2020.
Marcus recorded the album at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound facility. King and Auerbach co-wrote the 12 tracks on El Dorado over the course of just three days with assists from Paul Overstreet, Ronnie Bowman and Pat McLaughlin. “Marcus is known by so many as a phenom guitar player, and rightfully so,” Dan Auerbach said of working with King. “He’s regularly the best player in the room, hands down. I was equally blown away by the way he can sing – so effortless, so soulful, straight from the heart.”
“‘Say You Will’ is a classic rock and roll feel meant to inspire an emotion to make you want to move,” Marcus told Garden & Gun, who premiered “Say You Will,” about the song. “Sleepless fuzz guitar tones are meant to hit a nerve. Combined with the lyrics is a song that will take you on a ride through a tapestry of my favorite influences – Mountain, Joe Walsh, and Eric Clapton. When listening to this song you should be rowdy, whether at work or a cookout.”
