Anthemic is a theme that runs prominently through Marcus King's new album Young Blood, which was recorded at Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound Studio in Nashville. "I was going through a lot during the album with addictions, breakups, and addictions because of breakups. I was overindulging in everything," King says. "It's not a big secret to my friends. I was in a real rough place for a while. I was trying to process the death of family members and I was on the wrong medications." The record features contributions from Chris St. Hilaire (drums) and Nick Movshon (bass) with writing from King and Auerbach in collaboration with Desmond Child and Angelo Petraglia, who have collaborated with Aerosmith and Kings of Leon. "Music runs so deep in Marcus's blood he might not even realize how born to do this he is. He's the real deal," Auerbach shared. "Marcus has Southern Soul as part of his foundation. If you're going to play rock ‘n' roll with Marcus, you have to understand that element. It's just who he is. These songs are live performances. The whole damn thing is live – the solos and everything. It's so rare in this day and age."
