Video: Marcus King “Hardworking Man”

‘Hardworking Man’ is a blast of searing guitars and chugging drums.   Marcus King finds himself in some trouble in this new video.   A factory worker who gets involved in a heist with a beautiful woman only to find himself running from thugs, tied up in a back room and facing a beating with a tire iron.  Produced by Dan Auerbach, the track is a throwback to the best of 70’s southern rock with echoes of Skynyrd and Steve Miller seeping through.

This is the first single from King’s forthcoming full length ‘Young Blood’.  The album was recorded at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound Studio in Nashville summer 2021, with acclaimed musicians including Chris St. Hilaire on drums and Nick Movshon on bass. Songs were written by King and Auerbach in collaboration with legends such as Desmond Child and Angelo Petraglia, noted for their work with bands from Aerosmith to Kings of Leon.

Marcus King is currently on a world tour with headline dates across the US, UK and Europe. He has just announced a further huge run of shows across the USA for the autumn including two nights at New York’s Beacon, Nashville’s legendary Ryman and Atlanta’s Tabernacle.
