Out March 29, 2024; lead track, ‘Alarm Clock,’ available now
Nine-time Grammy Award-winner and 2023 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Sheryl Crow announced today she will release her 11th full-length studio album, “Evolution,” on March 29, 2024. Featuring nine new songs, the album is produced by Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Gary Clark Jr.) and will be released via The Valory Music Group. “Evolution” is available for preorder here.
Crow stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to chat about the project and her impending induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. She debuted "Alarm Clock" before appearing on “Good Morning America” the next morning.
Crow publicly stated that she would not release another full-length album after “Threads” (2018), so “Evolution” comes as a welcome surprise.
“Everything is more song-oriented now with streaming, and making an album is a huge endeavor,” Crow said. “I started sending just a couple of demos to Mike, but the songs just kept flowing out of me and it was pretty obvious this was going to be an album.”
“Evolution” is Crow at her most authentically human self.
“This music and these lyrics came from sitting in the quiet and writing from a deep soul place,” she explained. “I said I’d never make another record, thought there was no point to it. But this music comes from my soul. And I hope whoever hears this record can feel that.”
Crow is a nine-time Grammy recipient and an American music icon. Her first nine studio albums have sold 35 million copies worldwide; seven charted in the Top 10, and five were certified for multi-Platinum sales. Crow has been feted by a new generation of singer-songwriters who have covered her songs and talked about her influence, including Phoebe Bridgers, H.E.R, Haim, Maren Morris, Lorde, Sasami, Best Coast and Brandi Carlile.
