Sheryl Crow talks songwriting, politics and going back to her roots on Be Myself

Nine-time Grammy winner "barfs out lyrics" on album 10
With the release of her 2013 album Feels Like Home, it appeared that Sheryl Crow was putting a full stop on a whirlwind period of her life and beginning a new chapter.
The nine-time-Grammy winner recorded the album in her adopted hometown of Nashville, having moved out there following her diagnosis with breast cancer in 2006. In the years that followed, Crow beat the disease and stayed in Music City to raise her two adopted children, Wyatt Steven and Levi James.
So, when Feels Like Home dropped (released by Warner Bros. Nashville), it made perfect sense that the record had a hefty dollop of country twang. However, for new album Be Myself, Crow has taken a step back from the country world.
This time, Crow instead dug back into her roots, channelling a feel more akin to the early records that set her on a path to singer-songwriter superstardom. Ahead of Be Myself’s release on 21 April, Crow filled us in on the switch, as well as all things gear, Donald Trump and the perils of 21st century parenting.
Feels Like Home was very much a country album, whereas Be Myself has the feel of your first two or three albums. Was it a conscious decision to go back to your roots in that respect?
Sheryl Crow talks music, compassion and being the 'dorky mom' performing in a worn Mickey Mouse T-shirt

Sheryl Crow pulled up a stool and sat down at the counter in the spacious kitchen of her farmhouse about 10 miles out of downtown Nashville.
It’s casual Thursday on the Crow family spread that she shares with her two sons, who are in school this morning while she greets a visitor. She’s sporting a fading Bruce Springsteen T-shirt, well-broken-in jeans and black boots, an ensemble that’s more about function than fashion, comfort not couture.
Just five nights earlier, she was on stage at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, where she gave a boisterous crowd of about 500 fans their first sampling of material from her latest album, “Be Myself,” out April 21 through her new record deal with Warner Bros. Records.

NASHVILLE — On rolling countryside just outside of Nashville, in a rambling two-story house with aged wood floors and artfully mismatched vintage furnishings, Sheryl Crow has built an ideal home where she and her sons, Wyatt, 9, and Levi, 6, can spend time together.
The road to this retreat winds through some woods, passes a barn that serves as a rehearsal space and former stables filled now with recording equipment. It’s close enough to Music City to make trips into town easy yet secluded so that intrusions are limited to birds and the occasional whistling wind.
Yet here in her study, seated near her piano and a crackling fire, she seems momentarily regretful.
