Sheryl Crow Teases Collab Album Feat. Keith Richards, Johnny Cash & More

By Nicole Mastrogiannis - Heart Radio

Sheryl Crow is getting ready to release a brand new album, and now signed to Big Machine Label Group, it will be unlike anything she's ever released. This album of collaborations will feature some of the most iconic and talented artists in rock and country music.

This new album will follow 2017's Be Myself, and although word is that this will be Crow's final album ever ... will it really be? Sheryl tells iHeartRadio, "I mean, never say never, but yes. I feel like this will be my last album. I'll continue to probably do things here and there." But, even if this really is Crow's last album, fans can always see her on tour. She tells us, "I will always play music. I mean, it's the thing that I know how to do. I would go crazy if I didn't play music."

Crow's upcoming new album features collaborations from music legends like Rolling Stones' Keith Richards, Joe Walsh, Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks, James Taylor and Willie Nelson, among others. The record also features other talented artists including Gary Clark Jr., Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, Lucius, and St. Vincent (they released their song "Wouldn't Want To Be Like You" last year). Sheryl tells us of how she decided who she wanted to work on this album with, "The people I chose to be on the record were just people that I have loved and admired and had relationships with. Many of these people, I owned their records when I was seven and eight years old. I mean, I can remember unzipping the zipper on Sticky Fingers, and I remember the cover of Rumours and wanting to look like Stevie Nicks. And, who would have thought somebody, you know, a young girl from a tiny town in Missouri would wind up working with these people and having relationships with them. So, when it came time to make the record, there was an obvious list of people I wanted to ask. And luckily most of them said yes."

She adds, "Keith [Richards], it was definitely a go-to. Don Henley gave me one of my first gigs. Stevie Nicks, Joe Walsh, Vince Gill (who's practically my neighbor), James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, who, I mean, he's my favorite duet partner on the planet. And there are quite a few young people that really inspire me and that I feel like are gonna go on and carry on the tradition of what we've all been doing, and that's writing songs and playing. And that's Gary Clark Jr. and Brandi Carlile, and Jason Isbell and Lucius, and Annie Clark [St. Vincent], obviously. It's a long list. I'm sure I'm leaving people off, but just people I've loved and wanted to make music with."

Speaking of all-star collaborations, the first single that Crow is sharing from this new album is probably already familiar to her fans. It's called "Redemption Day" and features vocals from the legendary Johnny Cash. Sheryl calls receiving the green light from Johnny Cash's family "humbling," let alone even having a relationship with them. She says, "He was a part of my music dictionary. And then to know he and June, and to have a relationship with them and the family, it feels very sacred."

Sheryl explains of how this version of "Redemption Day" came to be, "It's a song I wrote in '95 or '96. [It] came out on my [second] record, and cut to 15/18 years later, June Carter passed, and the Carter family asked me to sing at her funeral. And Johnny called me after she passed a couple of months later and said, 'I'm feeling like making a record and my son-in-law gave me this song and I'd like to cut it.' And it was 'Redemption Day.' He passed away pretty shortly after that. The song kind of got pushed back and pushed back, and eventually came out, but it didn't make much noise. And when I got ready to make the record and with what we're going through, just historically right now, it seemed like a great time to revisit that song and grab his demo vocal and recreate it. So that's what we did, with the blessings of his family."

She adds of the song, "I hope that, to quote Carlos Santana, 'I hope it moves the molecules.' I hope people feel what the song has to say and that they feel the impact of his vocal on it and the timeliness of it."

REVIEW

"A little Tuesday Night Music Club on a Thursday: In spite of a cringe-worthy introduction from Murray in which he praised her casserole and the "hot pants" she wore the first time he saw her, Crow soared through "If It Makes You Happy," the snarling single, and the optimistic "Every Day is a Winding Road" off her 1996 self-titled album. "All I Wanna Do," her breakout smash from her debut album Tuesday Night Music Club, sparked sing-alongs as well, and she tapped her longtime friend Nelson to join her for a smooth cover of the Allman Brothers' "Midnight Rider."

LIVE REVIEW

By Ed Masley
Arizona Republic (azcentral.com)

It felt a bit like culture shock wandering in on Incubus welcoming fans to their set with a blistering version of "Privilege" after seeing Sheryl Crow bring her second-stage set to a spirited finish with "Soak Up the Sun," sending fans on their fans with "Be good, love each other."

Wearing a shirt that said "Let's start a revolution" with a heart where the "o" should be in "revolution," Crow was in radiant spirits from the time she took the stage to lead her six-piece backing band in "If It Makes You Happy" and "Everyday is Winding Road," which found her hopping up and down with a contagious smile.

"OK, we've gotta do this song," she said, explaining that if they had never done "this" song, "we just wouldn't be here," and then going on to note that certain members of the audience wouldn't be anywhere if their parents hadn't heard "this" song.

"This" song, of course, was "All I Wanna Do," her breakthrough hit from 1994, which was given an especially conversational, playful delivery by Crow and turned into a massive singalong.

The career-defining hits kept coming with the Stonesy "My Favorite Mistake," after which she told a story about eating succulent sticks at Zinburger and having to go to the doctor.

Then, she offered some friendly advice. "If you go to Zinburger, don't mess with the succulents," she said. "They're not on the menu."

"A Change Would Do You Good" inspired Crow to wonder, "Do you think we need a change? Just a change from all the ugliness and hatred going on, no matter what side you're on?"

She returned to the state of the world, if playfully, with "Can't Cry Anymore," saying "I do get tired of watching the news on TV. How about you? Wouldn't you rather just come out and hear music, smoke a little weed, drink some beer and just have a great time? That's what I say."

She followed that one with a song she just recorded with Joe Walsh. "I would love to bring Joe out," she said. "But he's not here."

It was a song about how these are the good old days, which gave way to a song that says our best days are in front of us before bringing the set to a close with a chorus of "I'm gonna soak up the sun / I'm gonna tell everyone to lighten up."

That's a lot of sun to soak up in one sitting. But I'd hate to be the person who could walk away from Crow's performance without feeling like at least a tiny fraction of the world's weight had just been lifted off my shoulders.
