The Black Crowes are set to release their first new recordings in 12 years—a covers EP. The band, with brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, will release the 1972, containing cover songs. It will be released on Amazon Music on May 4th.
The release contains six songs that were hits in 1972. Chris indicated that was when “rock & roll music represented this cosmic American music vibe.”
Songs featured on the album include the Temptations’ “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” the Rolling Stones’ “Rocks Off,” T-Rex’s “The Slider,” Rod Stewart’s “You Wear It Well,” Little Feat’s “Easy to Slip,” and David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream.”
