Black Crowes Enlist For “War” On New Album


November 27, 2007

The Black Crowes have wrapped “Warpaint,” their first studio album since 2001.

The band will release the set March 4 internationally via their own Silver Arrow imprint.

The 11-track set was recorded at Allaire Studios in Woodstock, N.Y. It features the recording debut of new guitarist Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars and keyboardist Adam MacDougall. They join original members Chris and Rich Robinson and drummer Steve Gorman, as well as bassist Sven Pipien.

All of the tracks are Robinson brothers originals, except “God’s Got It,” which was penned by the Reverend Charlie Jackson.

The Crowes will perform “Warpaint” in its entirety during a spring U.S. run that will begin March 4, with dates to be announced. A world tour will follow, which kicks off March 24 at Australia’s Byron Bay Festival.
