David Crosby Announces Fall U.S. Tour, Shares New Lighthouse Track “The City”

Listen To “The City” Here, And Watch A New Video For “Things We Do For Love” Here 

August 26, 2016 - Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee David Crosby today announces a fall tour in support of his dazzling new solo album Lighthouse, out October 21st on GroundUP Music/Verve Label Group. The tour will feature Crosby with a new group that includes Lighthouse producer and Snarky Puppy bandleader Michael League, as well as Lighthouse contributors Becca Stevens and Michelle Willis. The quartet will perform songs from Lighthouse as well as breath a new spirit into songs from Crosby’s remarkable career. They’ll swap instruments, back each other up on vocals and combine to recreate the astonishing vocal harmony stacks found throughout Lighthouse.

Lighthouse is a masterful record, an intimate, stripped-down set that highlights Crosby’s instantly recognizable voice, incisive songwriting, and incomparable guitar work. The palpable joy in the 9-song collection captures the iconic artist in an unexpected burst of inspiration.

Lighthouse is already starting to win early praise, here’s what we’ve been hearing:

“A collection of new songs performed in a sparse acoustic setting, with a warm, bright light trained on his voice and guitar.”

-New York Times

 

“The 75-year-old folk-rock luminary is back to exploring more lush and humbly sized acoustic-guitar balladry.”

-New York Magazine

 

"’Things We Do for Love’ finds Crosby's ever-delicate voice gliding over a soft acoustic progression, then swelling into a stunning wall of harmony. While the song is primarily just Crosby and a guitar, producer Michael League of Snarky Puppy expertly laces the track with the occasional horn line that sifts across the mix.”

-Rolling Stone

 

"’The City’ has an urgency and intimacy… when those rich layers of complex vocal harmony kick in, all the lush, luminous qualities that can make the city so seductive are instantly underlined.

-NPR Music

In Crosby’s unparalleled six-decade career, the native Californian has created songs that resonate as indelible cultural touchstones for more than three generations, not only as a solo artist, but as a founding member of The Byrds in the mid-60s, Crosby, Stills & Nash (recipients of the Grammy for best new artist in 1969), and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. He’s collaborated with dozens of artists, including Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Phil Collins, Elton John and Carole King. The folk rock pioneer, who was inducted into the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009, has also served as our social conscience, not only eloquently writing about societal issues on such songs as “Almost Cut My Hair” and “Wooden Ships,” but continuously donating concert proceeds to likeminded causes.
