Nashville-based singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow worked with several artists on her upcoming album, slated for release next year. The singer also says it will likely be her final full-length project.
During an interview with Consequence of Sound’s Kyle Meredith, Crow says following the release of the upcoming album, she plans to release only singles going forward. The upcoming full-length project will include collaborations with Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards, Joe Walsh, Don Henley and more. The project follows 2017’s Be Myself.
The strategy follows her most recent music release schedule. Crow partnered with music company Stem to release the single “Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You” (ft. Annie Clark). She previously released 2017’s “The Dreaming Kind” with the help of Bandcamp.
“I love this album so much, but at the same time I’m like, ‘How would you follow that up with an album?’ I do think albums…are a bit of a dying art form, that people are more interested in singles,” Crow said. “I sort of made the decision in my head that the record that comes out next year will be my last full album and I’ll just start putting songs out and that feel good to me. It feels great not to spend the time in the studio to make a fully realized conceptual album but just to put out really pertinent songs that feel immediate.”
