LISTEN: David Crosby previews first solo song in 20 years
Ahead of his first solo outing in 20 years, David Crosby previewed a new single this week.
Titled "What's Broken," the single will appear on the full-length LP Croz, which goes on sale January 28.
Recorded in Santa Monica at Jackson Browne's Groove Masters studio, the album finds Crosby working with his son, James Raymond, and co-producer, Daniel Garcia. The 11 song recording will be released on Blue Castle Records, the label Crosby co-founded with Graham Nash.
"What's Broken," with its touch jazz and funk inflections, may take longtime Crosby fans off-guard, but that doesn't bother the rock and folk legend.
"I wanted to challenge myself," Crosby told Rolling Stone. "Most guys my age would have done a covers record or duets on old material. This won't be a huge hit. It'll probably sell nineteen copies. I don't think kids are gonna dig it, but I'm not making it for them. I'm making it for me. I have this stuff that I need to get off my chest.
Crosby and his son will hit the road to promote the new album, kicking off a modest tour that starts the day the record drops at Manhattan's City Winery.
