Leading up to the release of her new, collaborative LP Threads, Sheryl Crow has shared a new track featuring Jason Isbell.
A sauntering blues-rock number, “Everything Is Broken” comes from the Bob Dylan songbook, and showcases both Crow and Isbell’s strengths as singers.
The new song is not dissimilar to Crow’s other recent collaboration with Eagles/James Gang rocker Joe Walsh, “Still The Good Old Days.”
Threads will be released on Aug. 30 via Big Machine, and include collaborations with Isbell, Walsh, Bonnie Raitt, Mavis Staples, Stevie Nicks and more.
“I became inspired to record an album of musical experiences with the legacy artists who inspired me to want to be a great songwriter, musician, and producer,” Crow has said of the new album. “It is a celebration with them, and a tribute to them. Just as importantly, I wanted to work with younger artists on this record, who I believe will pick up the torch and continue to light the way for humanity with their stories and their songs for many years to come. Their music inspires me every day.”
