In Their Words: “‘Blood On the Tracks’ was the first song we wrote for the record. It was also my first time meeting Desmond Child. He’s 100% unapologetically himself at all times and that charmed me immediately. I really enjoyed working with Dan [Auerbach] and Desmond on this tune. They both have such an acute sensibility for a ‘hook’ it is scary! The song essentially tells the story of moving forward or being taken down by the trouble you are facing — catching the train or the bloodier alternative. Every writing session for this record started with a conversation, an opportunity for my collaborators to take a peek inside my soul and the pain I was carrying around.” — Marcus King
