Surprise. Crow will release "Evolution"

Friday, November 3, 2023 – Sheryl Crow surprisingly announced today she will release her 11th full-length studio album, "Evolution," on March 29, 2024.

Crow had previously said that she would not release any new albums.

Featuring nine new songs, the album is produced by Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Gary Clark Jr) and will be released via The Valory Music Group.

The lead single "Alarm Clock" is out now and is co-written by Crow with Elizondo and Emily Weisband.

Crow visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday to chat about the project and her impending induction into The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame tonight and debuted "Alarm Clock" before appearing on Good Morning America in the morning.

Crow publicly stated that she would not release another full-length album after "Threads" (2018). "Everything is more song oriented now with streaming, and making an album is a huge endeavor." said Crow. "I started sending just a couple of demos to Mike, but the songs just kept flowing out of me, and it was pretty obvious this was going to be an album."

"This music and these lyrics came from sitting in the quiet and writing from a deep soul place. I said I'd never make another record, thought there was no point to it. But this music comes from my soul. And I hope whoever hears this record can feel that."

The unwritten, but rule showed the mainstream record companies emphasized young pop starlets. They didn't just rule the charts – they were the charts. Crow's conclusion was, in paraphrase, that yes, she could make an album, ...
CD review - Threads With "Threads," Sheryl Crow gets the all-star-guest treatment on what she says is her swang song, with each song featuring a favorite fellow artist. She seems a little too young for this kind of tribute. Nevertheless, this a fine collection of songs, most of which Crow had a hand in writing. Some of these configurations work better than others. Kudos for including Public Enemy's Chuck D on "Story of Everything," even though their collaboration comes off sounding a little awkward. ...
CD review - Feels LIke Home The list of artists who want to have gone country shows no signs of letting up. After the inclusion of everyone from Kid Rock (guess who sang on his Picture?) to Jimmy Buffett comes rootsy rocker Sheryl Crow, whose jump to what passes for country these days in the mainstream market pretty much makes her a first cousin and isn't all that far fetched. But Crow is more country influenced than an outright country disc. Crow, who co-produced with Justin Niebank, sprinkles the songs with pedal ...
