Sheryl Crow: new album "Wildflower" [9/27/05]

Crow Runs 'Wild' On New Album

Sheryl Crow has named her new album "Wildflower" after a track on the album inspired by her boyfriend, championship cyclist Lance Armstrong. As previously reported, the set is due Sept. 27 via A&M/Interscope and will be led by the single "Good Is Good," which will be featured in an ad campaign for computer supplier Dell.

In addition, Crow's Web site reports she has recorded acoustic covers of James Taylor's "You Can Close Your Eyes," Willie Nelson's "Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain" and Aretha Franklin's "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Loved You)" for an expanded, Dual Disc edition of her "Artist's Choice" compilation via Hear Music/Starbucks.

Footage of Crow in the studio will be included on the DVD side of the album, which will be available in the fall.

As previously reported, Crow will join such acts as Paul McCartney, Wyclef Jean and Snoop Dogg on a Bee Gees tribute album, due next year via a label yet to be determined.

I loved the first few albums of hers but kinda drifted away after awhile. I guess all artists grow and change, but she just seemed too different.

Anyone else?

To me she's just become a generic 70's style artist. SHe's a decent enough songwriter but she's never really progressed beyond basic classic rock formulas.

Just more generic material to garner another Grammy...(yawn)

C'mon, C'mon was a terrific album.

But the last time she let a relationship be the inspiration for most of an album was when she was coming off of a bad relationship with Eric Clapton and made the wonderful Globe Sessions.

I think the whole Lance relationship will be all over this record and happiness usually translates to crap on a record.

I still think she's on of the few people who rarely disappoints completely, so I'll be picking this up for sure.
