Ahead of her Glastonbury Festival performance this weekend, Sheryl Crow did an interview with NME’s Nick Levine to promote her new record.
Released on August 30, Crow’s upcoming album Threads will be released via Big Machine Records.
When asked about whether she still plans for it to be her final album release, Sheryl told Levine that it was more than likely.
“I think more than likely it will be my last album. I’m really at peace about that. I have loved my career, I don’t feel like my career is over, but I feel like things have just changed so drastically. I’ve loved making records, I’ve loved producing, but I feel like for the love and the time and the emotion that goes into creating an artistic statement, a full body of work, that now with technology people kind of just cherry-pick songs, and it seems sort of futile to me,” the “Everyday Is A Winding Road” hitmaker stated.
Threads is a collaborative album which features songs with a range of new and old artists.
She revealed that she has been working on the record for about three and a half years and that she feels the collaborations she chose to do on it were “obvious” because she has a great relationship with each and every one of them.
The record consists of 17 tracks and over 20 collaborations, including the likes of Maren Morris, Stevie Nicks, Sting, and St. Vincent.
