New David Crosby album “Lighthouse” gets release date

News from Uncut this morning on the only sometimes slightly grumpy man of americana. David Crosby has announced details of a new solo album “Sky Trails”. The album follows on from Lighthouse, which he released in October 2016. Sky Trails is released on September 29. It is a full band album, who include saxophonist Steve Tavaglione, bassist Mai Agan, drummer Steve DiStanislao and Crosby’s son, multi-instrumentalist James Raymond, who also produced the album.

Crosby and Raymond recorded some of the songs at Raymond’s home studio and then moved to Jackson Browne’s Groove Masters studio in Santa Monica for tunes that feature the full band.

The album includes a cover of Joni Mitchell‘s “Amelia” from her 1976 album, Hejira. “I’ve always loved how Joni wrote about her love life and Amelia Earhart’s life at the same time,” Crosby says. “It’s just exquisite writing.”

The tracklisting for Sky Trails is:

She’s Got To Be Somewhere
Sky Trails
Sell Me A Diamond
Before Tomorrow Falls On Love
Here It’s Almost Sunset
