The 10-part thriller focuses on Steven Avery, who was wrongly imprisoned for sexual assault and attempted murder for 18 years. Four years after his exoneration, he was convicted of an unrelated murder.
The show has been making headlines since it was released via Netflix in December (15), and Auerbach was so affected by Avery's story, he wrote a song titled Lake Superior about the case.
He shared the track, recorded with his side band The Arcs, on Twitter.com and wrote, "It's like (author) Billy Childish says, 'We live in troubled times'. Last week, we got a sneak peek 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. Written, recorded, mixed and mastered in 2 days."
Proceeds from the sale of the track will go to the Innocence Project, a non-profit organisation which is "dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice."
The Wisconsin branch of the organisation features in the documentary.
