David Crosby wraps first solo album in 20 years

9/4/2013

David Crosby has been tweeting about his upcoming album, marking his first solo studio set since 1993, which he's been producing with son, James Raymond. Crosby posted: "OK I think it is done. . . a brand new David Crosby record. . . 11 tracks. . . all new . . . I love it . . . I believe it is going to be called Dangerous Night . . . we finished mixing it tonight . . . myself. . . Son James. . . and friend Dan Garcia. . . not like anything else."

He went on to say, "Probably going to piss off the government again. . . one of the songs 'Morning Falling' is about a drone strike. Most of the others are about life and love. . . but just as usual. . . strange and hopefully beautiful . . . I think it will come out in Jan. probably sell at least 18 copies. . . Can't wait to play this live which I should be able to do in Feb. Or March. . . mostly just can't wait for you to hear it."

David Crosby told us that for him, being a songwriter and having a social conscience are one and the same: "Well, y'know, you start out simply seeing something that's dishonest, or wrong, or harmful and saying: 'That's dishonest, or wrong, or harmful.' You start out seeing America shooting its own children and watch Neil Young write 'Ohio' and think, 'Yeah, I wanna be a part of that.' Then you have children of your own and the universe shifts. Humbling and a responsibility that you cannot -- if you are a human being -- you cannot ignore, you cannot sit out."

Crosby, Stills, & Nash will next perform on October 5th in Bournemouth, England.
