Sheryl Crow Sets Album, Tour and Hints of Moreby Best Classic Bands Staff
Update (Mar. 17): We’ve updated our post to include a Making-Of the album feature. (See it below.)
Our original item from March 3…
Sheryl Crow used the occasion of a concert at Los Angeles’ renowned Troubadour on March 2 to formally announce and preview her new studio album, Be Myself, coming April 21, her first via Warner Bros. Records. And today (March 3), she revealed a batch of concert dates this summer on her own as well as part of the Outlaw tour with Willie Nelson. Crow let slip that other acts expected for some of the dates include “some Bob Dylan I think I’m hearing. I’m hearing Neil Young maybe… It’s gonna be the funnest tour of all time.”
In a backstage video from the club, Crow describes Be Myself as “a total throwback to my second record and my third record” and jokes “but if you didn’t like my second and third record, it’s not anything like those at all.” See the entire backstage video announcement below.
Crow also released an animated video for “Halfway There” from the new album. The song features guitarist Gary Clark, Jr.; watch it below.
The singer-songwriter turned 55 on February 11. The nine-time Grammy Award-winning musician (32 times nominated) hasn’t released a new record since 2013’s Feels Like Home.
