The Black Crowes to release new album

Well, it's made up of old stuff

The Black Crowes are to release a new double album later this year.

The band, who reformed to play London shows earlier this year, release the double ‘The Lost Crowes’ on August 29. It’s made up of tracks culled from previous recording sessions.

Billboard reports the first CD will be called ‘The Band Sessions’ and will feature material recorded in 1997 such as an early version of the single ‘By Your Side’ called ‘If It Ever Stops Raining’, ‘Paint An 8’, ‘Life Vest’ and ‘Another Roadside Tragedy’.


Disc 2 will be called ‘The Tall Sessions’, and features tracks recorded from 1993, including earlier versions of songs which appeared on the 1994 ‘Amorica’ album. Songs on this disc include ‘Thunderstorm 654’, ‘Feathers’ and an alternate version of ‘Ballad In Urgency’ called ‘Lowdown’.

Also due on August 29 is the DVD debut of the 1992 video compilation ‘Who Killed That Bird Out On Your Window Sill’.
