Sheryl Crow is sharing more details of her upcoming Threads album, including who she collaborated with for the 17-track duets record. Crow invited several country stars to join her on what she hints might be her final album, including Maren Morris, Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, the late Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris and Vince Gill.
"I became inspired to record an album of musical experiences with the legacy artists who inspired me to want to be a great songwriter, musician, and producer," Crow said of Threads. "It is a celebration with them, and a tribute to them. Just as importantly, I wanted to work with younger artists on this record, who I believe will pick up the torch and continue to light the way for humanity with their stories and their songs for many years to come. Their music inspires me every day."
The 57-year-old vows to keep making music after the release of Threads, just maybe not in full projects like she has in the past.
"I made the decision in my head that the record that comes out next year will be my last full album and I'll just start putting songs out," Crow previously told Consequence of Sound. "That feels good to me," Crow says. "To not spend the time in the studio to make a fully realized conceptual album but just to put out really pertinent songs that feel immediate."
Other notable artists who appear on Threads include Andra Day, Sting, Joe Walsh, James Taylor and Eric Clapton. See a complete track list below. Threads will be released on Aug. 30. Pre-order the album at SherylCrow.com.
