David Crosby has announced his third album in two years is coming in October. The album follows ‘Lighthouse’ (2016) and ‘Sky Trails’ (2017).
‘Here If You Listen’ is a collaboration with Becca Stevens, Michael League and Michelle Willis. Stevens, League and Willis worked with Crosby on ‘Lighthouse’ and will be his band when he goes on tour.
“If leaving a group like Crosby, Stills & Nash was like jumping off a cliff, then finding the Lighthouse Band was like growing wings halfway down,” says Crosby. “These three people are so startlingly talented, I literally couldn’t resist making this album with them.”
The first taste of the album is ‘Glory’.
‘Here If You Listen’ was produced by Michael League and co-produced with Stevens, Willis and Crosby. “The songs are taking on all of our collective influences, which is kind of crazy if you think about it—hearing the influence of Björk on a song with David Crosby lyrics, for example,” League notes.
Most of the album was written in League’s studio in Brooklyn.
David Crosby and band will tour the album across the USA starting 2 November 2018 in Seattle.
