Sheryl Crow's final album due for release in 2019 will feature some of the brightest stars in the music industry.
Sheryl Crow Reveals Collaborators In Star-Studded Final Album
The 56-year-old revealed these exciting new details during an appearance on Kyle Meredith With... She said that for the still-untitled album, she teamed up with her "heroes."
The Grammy-winning singer revealed that she has also collaborated with Joe Walsh and Don Henley.
"How would I follow that up with an album," she commented on the podcast over the weekend.
She also recently released "Wouldn't Want To Be Like You," her collaboration with St. Vincent. In a conversation with Billboard, the Missouri-born artist revealed how the socially-conscious track came to be.
"I called her and said, 'I am dying to have you bring your St. Vincent-ness to this.' And I said, 'You will not hurt my feelings if you don't like the song,'" said Crow. "And I sent it to her, and her response was, 'Fuck yeah.' That was a direct quote, as only Annie Clark can respond, which I loved. She did all kinds of stuff on it, and we pretty much used all of it.'"
Annie Clark contributed co-lead vocals, backing vocals, and her signature sound of distorted guitar riffs.
I was so honored when Sheryl hit me up to play with her. What a wonderful singer, player, songwriter and a rad woman to boot!!! Here is "Wouldn't Want To Be Like You."

Sheryl Crow Comments On The Music Industry
In the same interview, Crow also talked about the current state of the music industry and how full-length album is becoming a dying breed. She said that people seem to be more interested in singles rather than an LP.
This observation has pushed her to make the decision to release a final album. However, this does not mean that she will stop making new music.
"I'll just start putting songs out," she added, "to put out really pertinent songs that feel immediate."
The still-untitled new album is her 11th record since her debut album in 1993. It follows her 2017 LP, Be Myself, which came out last year and peaked at the 22nd spot of the Billboard 200.
As of this writing, no exact release date for the upcoming album has been announced yet.
