Sheryl Crow released a new song today called “Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You.” The track features Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) and in a Billboard interview, Crow says that the lyrical content is about “the climate of truth not being important anymore.” Crow met Clark at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit show where the two duetted Crow’s “Riverwide.”
Crow is currently shopping a collaborative album, which follows last year’s Be Myself. In the Billboard interview, Crow says that she doesn’t want to stop releasing music but this might be her final full-length. She debuted “Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You” by way of a startup called Stem rather than a traditional record label. “For artists out there who don’t belong, or seemingly don’t fit into this cookie cutter world of very young pop, it’s a great way to get your music out there,” she said in the interview.
In order to get Clark on the track, Crow called her up and asked her to bring her “St. Vincent-ness” to it. “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!!!” Clark tweeted.
