The Black Crowes Release “Brothers Of A Feather” Film Through Amazon’s “The Coda Collection”

The Black Crowes have released a new film, titled “Brothers Of A Feather,” through Amazon’s “The Coda Collection.” That effort focuses on the band’s reunion and the final night of their 2020 acoustic tour, which wrapped up at the Chapel in San Francisco, CA on March 6, 2020.

The Black Crowes Working On New Music With “Shake Your Money Maker” Producer George Drakoulias

It was recently revealed that The Black Crowes were working on new music and now it has also been confirmed that “Shake Your Money Maker” producer George Drakoulias is involved in the sessions. For now, the band’s main focus is touring, but a new album is tentatively expected to surface in 2022.

Rich Robinson said the following during an appearance on the “Lipps Service With Scott Lipps” podcast:

“Yeah, Chris and I always write; in general, it’s what we do. And it keeps me sane in a day, to be able to write some songs. I have a studio here [at home], so to me, it was one of the things that kept everything going during this time that we had. To be able to send songs to Chris and have him send me stuff, and back and forth. And also working with George again for the first time has been great; it’s been really cool.”

Chris Robinson also commented in a separate interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

“We were sitting around during the pandemic, and Rich just started sending me stuff and two or three things turned into five or six things. That’s just how we work. He has a little home studio, so he can send me rough sketches. I’m not that technologically advanced. I’m like with a pencil on an old piece of paper.”

“We just want to get as many songs as we can and we’re working with George Drakoulias again, our producer, which has been fantastic. [He’s] one of the real last of the great ears for the essence of these songs, what they can be, how they live. A great song lives outside of the time it’s made. He has great vision that way. He understands our strong points as writers and our talent as musicians. So, it’s super exciting. I know we’re going to make a record. We could make one tomorrow. Again, our focus this whole time has just been the tour.”

Chris Robinson Says The Black Crowes Have “Written About 20 New Songs”

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk,” Chris Robinson revealed that The Black Crowes are working on new material. He said the following:

“It’s funny, ’cause Rich and I, for whatever we’ve been through, the one place where we were always the most together [was when we were making music]. I mean, we fought onstage, we fought backstage, we fought in an Italian restaurant in Berlin, but when we’re writing has always been our sweet spot. It’s been amazing to get to where Rich and I are today. And we’re in a great, great place as brothers and as partners in this band and as songwriting partners. So, we’ve written about 20 new Black Crowes songs, which has been really cool.”

The Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson: “We’ll Get Around To Making A Record, But We’re In No Hurry To Do That”

During an appearance on AXS TV’s “At Home And Social,” Chris Robinson confirmed that The Black Crowes have written some new material. However, he went on to say that the band are “in no hurry” to make a new album. Robinson said the following:

“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]. 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.”
