Keith Richards, Justin Timberlake to guest on Sheryl Crow album
Wednesday 09 June 2010
American singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow's seventh studio album,
100 Miles from Memphis, will feature guests including Keith Richards and Justin Timberlake, the artist told
Billboard.com in an interview published June 8. The album is due out internationally the week of July 19.
For 100 Miles from Memphis, Crow takes inspiration from American soul musicians of the late 1960s and early 1970s, including Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Booker T, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, and Sly Stone. The release date of 100 Miles was first announced on May 5, and Crow since revealed via Twitter on May 14 than Keith Richards would be a guest on the album. The Rolling Stones guitarist, Crow told Billboard.com in the new interview, will play on the reggae-influenced track "Eye to Eye."
Crow also revealed that Justin Timberlake, a Memphis native, performs in an Al Green-styled cover of Terence Trent D'Arby's "Sign Your Name," and Citizen Cope - American alternative rock/folk musician Clarence Greenwood - performs with Crow in a rendition of his track "Sideways." Crow closes the album with a cover of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back."
Sheryl Crow has sold more than 35 million records worldwide, beginning with her 1993 debut album Tuesday Night Music Club, which won three Grammy Awards. She has gone on to win six additional Grammys and perform with musicians including Sting and Mick Jagger. Her 2008 album, Detours, peaked at number 2 on US and Canadian album charts and also made charts in the UK, Ireland, and Japan.
The album releases on July 19 internationally (July 20 in the US).
