The Black Crowes Announce New Album ‘Happiness Bastards’

January 15, 2024

The Black Crowes recently dropped news that should make you happy. Their new album, “Happiness Bastards”, is out on March 15! This is the band’s first full-length album in 15 years! And why not, they’re putting it out on their own record label, Silver Arrow Records.

They released the single, “Wanting And Waiting”, and it’s a hand clapping good time. Anybody else getting a ‘Jealous Again’ vibe? Sounds like that era Crowes.

Brother Crowes Chris Robinson (singer) and Rich Robinson (guitar) worked on the follow-up to their 2009 LP “Before The Frost… Until The Freeze” with producer Jay Joyce.

Chris said: “‘Happiness Bastards’ is our love letter to rock ‘n’ roll. Rich and I are always writing and creating music; that has never stopped for us, and it is always where we find harmony together. This record represents that.”

Rich added: “This album is a continuation of our story as a band. Our years of experience writing and making music and touring the world are represented in this record, and we were brilliantly guided by one of the best producers in the business, Jay Joyce. I am incredibly proud of what we put together.”
