Sheryl Crow’s next album will be her last
Sheryl Crow will release her final album in 2019. The sad announcement comes days after the singer revealed she is considering releasing her new album through digital distribution service Stem instead of under a major record label.
The project will feature collaborations with Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, and late country singer Johnny Cash.
“I’ve got this record in the can that’s going to be coming out next year,” she tells podcast Kyle Meredith With… “It’s a very collaborative record with people I’ve asked to collaborate with me, people I’ve loved and have worked with and who have been heroes of mine forever.”
“Albums as an art form are a bit of a dying art form. People are more interested in singles,” she adds. “I’ve made the decision in my head that the record that comes out next year will be my last full album. I’ll just start putting songs out… to put out really pertinent songs that feel immediate.”
The If It Makes You Happy hitmaker explains she is keen to continue releasing music, but she doesn’t feel full-length albums from artists like her will be in demand much longer.
Sheryl recently released the single ‘Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You’ with St. Vincent and she said she is looking forward to perform the track live with the singer.
