Sheryl Crow has unveiled yet another preview of her upcoming Threads album. Due for release on 30 August via her new pact with Big Machine Label Group, the record will feature a succession of stellar guest appearances. The latest to be shared is by Americana pacesetter Jason Isbell, who accompanies Crow on this spirited version of Bob Dylan’s ‘Everything Is Broken.’
Dylan’s original first appeared on his much-revered 1989 album Oh Mercy, and the duo revisit it with plenty of rocking energy and driving lead guitar and harmonica elements. The track follows Crow’s recent release of her collaboration with Joe Walsh, ‘Still The Good Old Days.’
Earlier tracks to emerge from the Threads album were ‘Prove You Wrong,’ featuring Stevie Nicks and Maren Morris; ‘Live Wire,’ co-starring Mavis Staples and Bonnie Raitt; and her electronic duet with Johnny Cash on her own song ‘Redemption Day.’
Crow has covered Bob Dylan before, notably when she recorded his composition ‘Mississippi’ after he offered her the chance to be the first to cut it. Dylan had taped the track during 1997 sessions for his Time Out Of Mind album, but it was omitted from that record when it appeared later that year.
Crow’s rendition appeared on her 1998 album The Globe Sessions, before Dylan revisited it on 2001’s Love and Theft. Rolling Stone went on to place ‘Mississippi’ at No. 21 in its list of Dylan’s 100 greatest songs. Sheryl’s 1999 live album Sheryl Crow and Friends: Live From Central Park concluded with a version of Dylan’s ‘Tombstone Blues.’
Threads will also feature contributions from Keith Richards, James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, Vince Gill, St. Vincent, Chuck D, Brandi Carlile, Gary Clark Jr, Andra Day and Eric Clapton. As reported recently by uDiscover Music, Clapton will feature on a remake of George Harrison’s ‘Beware Of Darkness,’ for which he played lead guitar on the All Things Must Pass original.
