The Black Crowes announce ‘1972’ covers EP

The Black Crowes have announced their new Amazon Original EP, titled ‘1972,’ and described as ‘a tribute to the 50th anniversary of some of the best rock-and-roll during its prime.’  The forthcoming project was recorded at the Sunset Sound in Los Angeles in January 2022 and is a collection of six songs that were specifically selected through a collaboration between the band and Amazon Music. The first single, a cover of “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone” by The Temptations, is available now.

The Black Crowes’ 1972 will be available exclusively on Amazon Music digitally on May 4th.  You can also join The Black Crowes on May 4th at 10 pm ET/7 pm PT for a performance of the EP live from the historic Whiskey a Go-Go in Los Angeles via Amazon Music’s channel on Twitch. May 4th also marks the 50th anniversary of a renowned Little Feat performance at the famed venue in 1972.

The band also just announced the dates for the second leg of their extended Shake Your Money Maker Tour following 37 dates in 2021. The tour is set to kick off June 9th in Fort Lauderdale, FL with stops in major markets across North America.
