Listen to the Arcs’ ‘Making a Murderer’-Inspired Song ‘Lake Superior’

The Arcs
Alysse Gafkjen

Apparently, Dan Auerbach spent his holiday the same way many of us did: binge-watching Making a Murderer. Unlike the rest of us, he wrote a song about it.

Auerbach’s latest project the Arcs have uploaded the new song “Lake Superior” to their SoundCloud. The song was written and recorded in just two days after Auerbach and company watched the Netflix documentary series. Take a listen below:

Making a Murder tells the story of Steven Avery (that’s him pictured in the “Lake Superior” artwork below), a man from Manitowoc County, Wis., who served 18 years in prison for a sexual assault he didn’t commit. After he was exonerated and released from jail in 2003, he was then convicted for an unrelated murder in 2005.

“It’s like Billy Childish says, ‘We live in troubled times,’” the Arcs wrote on their SoundCloud page. “Last week, we got a sneak peak at what goes on behind the curtains of our criminal justice system. A few sleepless nights later we gathered in the studio and wrote this song.”

All proceeds from “Lake Superior” will benefit the Innocence Project, a nonprofit dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted prisoners that has played a key role in Avery’s case and Making a Murderer.
