[VIDEO] Sheryl Crow Says Her Album Days Are Over



"Those Days Are Practically Obsolete," She Says

by Alison Bonaguro
CMT - 27 April

These are Sheryl Crow’s words, not mine.

“I’m a dinosaur in my own business.”

In a brand new interview with CMT’s Hot 20, Crow gets brutally honest about the whole album issue. The issue being, in a singles-driven and streaming-driven world, does we really need albums anymore?

“To be perfectly honest, I don’t know even know how I would follow this up as a statement,” Crow said of what may or may not come next after releasing a re-imagined take on her “Redemption Day” from her 1996 self-titled sophomore album. The new one features a new piano arrangement and vocals from the late Johnny Cash.

“I’ve loved making albums,” she admits, “I’ve loved the process of creating a story and a timeline and a beginning, and a middle and an end.

“But those days are practically obsolete. I’m a dinosaur in my own business. I can actually remember picking up the needle. It’s time to move on. I’ll continue to make songs and put them out, but it seems silly to make a whole newspaper when by the time it comes out, nobody’s gonna read it.”

Following the premiere of the documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice at the Tribeca Film Festival Friday night, singer Sheryl Crow took to the stage to pay tribute to the legendary singer. “Only an idiot would come on stage to perform Linda Ronstadt songs,” Crow told the crowd.

The singer then proceeded to sing a soulful rendition of “You’re No Good,” which Ronstadt put on her 1974 album Heart Like a Wheel. The Clint Ballard, Jr.-penned song was originally performed by Dee Dee Warwick in 1963.

Crow also played Ronstadt’s uptempo hit “When Will I Be Loved,” Ronstadt’s country-rock version of the 1960 Everly Brothers classic, and 1998 Crow's "My Favorite Mistake".

[VIDEO] "Redemption Day" Crow/Cash

Sheryl Crow Depicts Genocide, Environmental Collapse in ‘Redemption Day’ Video

By Joseph Hudak
Rolling Stone Country
19 April 2019

Crow re-records her 1996 song as a duet with Johnny Cash and sets it to jarring imagery

Sheryl Crow presents a disturbing commentary on the state of humankind in her new video for “Redemption Day.” The first release off her upcoming album for Nashville’s Valory Music Co., the stark piano ballad is a duet with Johnny Cash, who recorded his version of the song (Crow’s original appeared on her self-titled 1996 album) shortly before his death in 2003.

While the song is striking for its arrangement and the haunting verses delivered by Crow and Cash, it’s the jarring music video directed by Shaun Silva that leaves a mark. “Redemption Day” intersperses archival clips of the country icon and new footage of Crow playing piano in a field with newsreel imagery of both manmade and natural tragedies. Bombs are dropped, mass graves are filled, the Space Shuttle Challenger explodes. Wildfires rage, glaciers collapse, bees die off. All of it is witnessed through the eyes of a child.

Crow screened the video, which calls to mind Cash’s similarly unsettling “Hurt,” to press earlier this week during an event at the Cash Cabin, the Hendersonville, Tennessee, retreat-studio where Cash first recorded his take on “Redemption Day.”

“I went in to make this record, sitting at the piano, and Johnny was all over it,” Crow said of her inspiration to recast “Redemption Day” as a duet with the Man in Black. Once she received the blessing of the Cash estate, particularly that of Johnny and June Carter’s son John Carter Cash, she moved forward with her plan. “I feel like the song has found its moment,” she said.

Although the music video includes fleeting clips of Presidents Trump and Obama, it doesn’t take a decidedly partisan stance. Still, it’s not hard to see which way Crow leans — her Twitter account frequently blasts the current president and she recently tweeted at the First Lady, petitioning her to ask Trump to stop bullying and inciting violence.

“I feel like Johnny Cash would have an opinion on what’s happening today,” Crow said at the Cash Cabin. “He was very outspoken. He was a great American in my estimation. He stood for the rights of Native Americans and he stood out against the Vietnam War and the Iraq War. … He was who he was and he was going to say his piece and stand up for what he believed.”

Crow will release her new album — which she claims will be her last full-length project — later this summer. Along with Cash, it features cameos by Keith Richards, Don Henley and Joe Walsh.

One of the standout vocal collaborations in Nashville music history was introduced Wednesday (April 17) at the Cash Cabin Studio.

The invitation-only event was staged to unveil superstar Sheryl Crow’s duet with the late Johnny Cash on her song “Redemption Day.” Attendees experienced the recording via the premiere of a moving, politically charged and haunting music video featuring both artists.

“The song has found its moment, and this is that moment,” said Crow. “The first time I heard him sing it, I wept. Having his weight on it….means so much. To hear him singing, ‘There is a train that’s headed straight for Heaven’s gate,’ he’s the man to have singing that.”

Crow initially wrote “Redemption Day” in 1996 after touring war-torn Bosnia with Hillary Clinton. She included the song on her CD later that year.

Cash’s version of it was issued posthumously on his American IV: Ain’t No Grave collection of 2010. When he decided to record his version, shortly before his 2003 death, he called Crow.

“Johnny got on the phone and grilled me about this song and every lyric,” she said. “He asked me about, sadness bringing about mercy [in the song’s second verse]. He asked me about leaders not keeping us fully informed [in the song’s third and fourth verses].”

“If he took a song on, he believed in his connection to that music – that’s how the humanity comes through,” said John Carter Cash, who originally recorded his father’s vocal in the Cash Cabin Studio.

The video, directed by Shaun Silva, features Crow performing at her piano, a questioning child and vintage footage of Johnny Cash. These are intercut with images of environmental calamity, war brutality, racial injustice and other social ills. The two superstars trade verses, and Crow harmonizes with the legendary Country Music Hall of Fame member.

“Redemption Song” will be issued by Valory Music on April 19. Company founder Scott Borchetta presided at the event.

“’Redemption Song’ jumped through the speakers when I first heard it, and it hasn’t left me yet,” he said. “And I don’t think it will leave you.

“It’s surreal to me to be here in a place that means so much to me. [Cash] is still the biggest and baddest rock star there is. The last time I was here was 13 years ago when we did the first Taylor Swift video here, ‘Tim McGraw.’”

“My father is certainly in these walls,” said John Carter Cash. “We recorded Johnny’s vocal here in this cabin.

“This song opens the heart to the state of our world right now. I know my father would be proud for Sheryl to make this statement…I’m honored to be part of history.”

“You talking about your dad and this song makes me want to cry,” replied Crow. She sang at the funerals of both Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash.

Their son added, “I remember Sheryl Crow and my dad at the Pantages Theatre in L.A. It’s been quite a journey since then.”

Borchetta presented John Carter Cash with a photo commemorating that meeting, framed with the lyrics of “Redemption Day.” Borchetta also told him that Valory Music is named for his mother, Valerie June Carter Cash.

Sheryl Crow has sold more than 50 million records to date. She has stated that her album for Valory will be her last. In addition to Cash, it will contain contributions from a constellation of other stars, including Sting, Eric Clapton, Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards, Don Henley and Joe Walsh.

During the Cash Cabin event, she said she believes that the record album is a thing of the past.

“We don’t live in that day anymore,” Crow said. “I can ‘go out’ on this [as her last CD]. This is my way of saying I loved what I had. Young people don’t have that. And that’s okay. I like the idea of putting out a song like a tweet.

As for her collaborator on “Redemption Day:” “He was a great American. He was gonna have his say. He was gonna live his life.

“It matters that you stand up for what you believe in. It matters what the truth is.”

The invited guests included representatives from Nashville’s major media outlets, as well as Borchetta staff members and Music Row dignitaries.

“I hope this is one you never forget,” said Borchetta to the assembled media representatives. “Make this matter: I’m counting on you.”
