The Black Crowes have shared their latest single “Cross Your Fingers,” their second release from their upcoming new album Happiness Bastards, dropping March 15th.
Happiness Bastards was recorded in Nashville with Jay Joyce, who has previously worked with the likes of Halestorm, Brothers Osborne, Ashley McBryde, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood and Lainey Wilson. It’s the first Black Crowes album since 2010’s acoustic collection Croweology, and their first album of new material since the previous year’s Before the Frost…Until the Freeze.
Says guitarist Rich Robinson: “This album is a continuation of our story as a band. Our years of experience writing and making music and touring the world are represented in this record, and we were brilliantly guided by one of the best producers in the business.”
The Black Crowes also just announced a run of shows in North America, the UK and Europe in support of Happiness Bastards. The North American run begins on April 2 at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tennessee through May 7 at The Met Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. European dates kick off on May 14 at Manchester’s O2 Apollo, and run through to June 9.
