Dan Auerbach of Black Keys fame has a new band called The Arcs featuring Leon Michels, Richard Swift, Homer Steinweiss, Nick Movshon, Kenny Vaughan, and Mariachi Flor de Toloache. The new tune is called “Stay in My Corner” and apparently it’s inspired by the disappointing but big money Mayweather-Pacquiao bout last May.
Auerbach’s voice is about as unforgettable as a Mayweather jab, and he knows — also like Mayweather — how to author a hook. This is a sweet, pretty song filled with longing and falsetto. Figuring out what it has to with vicious pugilists and The Sweet Science is up to you.
