The Black Crowes announced their return by the end of 2019 but had to postpone their tour dates for 2021 due to the pandemic. To promote the reissue of the 30th anniversary edition of their classic album “Shake Your Money Maker”, singer Rich Robinson talked in an interview with AXS TV’s “At Home And Social” that the band will eventually make a new album.
Chris Robinson says Black Crowes will eventually make a new album:
“Rich and I, our focus, like anyone else, is to get through this pandemic and get back to where we can do the thing we love [to do],” Chris told AXS TV’s “At Home And Social” (see video below). “I miss going to see music as much as I miss playing.”
“And I know all of our friends for many, many decades and in many different places around the world who are musicians, [and] none of us are working. But our main focus is to tour. We’ve been writing a bunch of new songs, and we’ll get around to making a record, but we’re in no hurry to do that.”
“We wanna get on the road, we wanna do this tour. We put together an amazing band, and we wanna go out and do it.”
In an recent interview with Radio.com, he talked about his current relationship with his brother and guitarist Rich Robinson.
“I would say [we have a] great relationship, because I understand — and I’m a man, so I can deal with it — I understand where I let my brother down over the years, where I really should have been his brother, but I wasn’t his brother — even though my actions at the time facilitated that. But by the way, that’s kind of sometimes… Rock and roll, especially those first 10 years, was mean. You have to be tough.”
“Rock and roll bands are, like — you leave your dead by the side of the road and keep on going, you know what I mean? It wasn’t a sensitive place; it wasn’t a nurturing place. I’m hardly pretending I’m not unimaginably sensitive and had my own negative or destructive ways of dealing with whatever. I mean, the best part about it is you’re creative, you’re an artist, so, for better or for worse, you, [through] almost osmosis, you envelope all the things you are, because the people around you and the machine that you are running runs on a lot of emotional energy.”
“To be able to write songs that have emotional connection, no matter what that is — through the music, the melody, the imagery, and then subsequently the recording and the performance and what that means and how that changes. It’s a lot.”
