There's going to be an "Evolution" from Crow

Tuesday, January 16, 2024 – Sheryl Crow today released "Evolution," the title track from her upcoming 11th full-length studio album, "Evolution, out on March 29 on The Valory Music.

The song conveys Crow's uneasiness about artificial intelligence, its impact on the planet and humanity. "Stephen Hawking worried that A.I. would replace humans. As a mom, I want to leave a better world for my children, a healthier planet - is A.I. going to be a benevolent partner in these goals or not? It's unsettling, and this song deals with those anxieties," said Crow.

"I wrote the song with just me on guitar and vocals, sent it to Mike Elizondo and said, this is bigger than me, can you take a crack at it?"

Elizondo's (Dr. Dre, Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Gary Clark Jr) production on the track included utilizing a guitar solo by Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello. "To me, Tom's playing comes from some other planet," said Crow. "It's a cool bit of kismet that we were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in the same year, and his solo on 'Evolution' just ejects you into space."

The track list is:
1. Alarm Clock
2. Do It Again
3. Love Life
4. You Can't Change The Weather
5. Evolution
6. Where
7. Don't Walk Away
8. Broken Record
9. Waiting In The Wings
10. Digging In The Dirt (Digital Deluxe Only)

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 ...
