Sheryl Crow has been busy working on an album of new music, featuring collaborations with Stevie Nicks, Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Willie Nelson, Vince Gill and Keith Richards. The project, slated for release later this year, will be debut via Big Machine Label Group as the songstress has recently signed to the roster.
“I have been a Sheryl Crow fan from the first note of ‘Tuesday Night Music Club’ and when she announced that she intended to make her last album I immediately reached out to Scooter Weintraub and got a link to the music,” said Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta. “It’s a one-listen masterpiece that spans her entire career… and her friends that showed up for this record will blow everyone’s mind. I am honored that Big Machine gets to represent Sheryl and her music in this very important chapter of her career.”
“I’m so excited to release my next record on Big Machine. I can tell that Scott Borchetta and all the people that work there love music and love what they do. What an exciting feeling for someone who has been in the music business for over 25 years,” added Sheryl.
Over her multi-decade career, Crow has cemented herself as a consummate hitmaker, recording songs like the No.1 hits “All I Wanna Do,” “Soak Up the Sun” and “The First Cut Is the Deepest.” She’s worked with many of music’s biggest names, including including the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Smokey Robinson and Tony Bennett.
In an interview in 2018, Crow hinted that the upcoming duets album might be her last.
“It’s a very collaborative record. People who have asked to collaborate with me, people I’ve loved and I’ve worked with, some heroes of mine for ever,” she told Kyle Meredith. “I really love the record so much, and at the same time I think, ‘How would I follow that up with an album?’”
No word yet on when Crow’s 11th, and possibly final, album will be released.
