THE BLACK CROWES Frontman Talks 'Warpaint'

THE BLACK CROWES frontman Chris Robison has told that the group's new album, "Warpaint" — which is due on March 4 via the CROWES' own Silver Arrow label — is the complete package of the Georgia-born CROWES' passions and influences — the Delta blues, Dixie soul and early-Seventies classic rock that immediately marked them as determined purists on their 1990 hit debut, "Shake Your Moneymaker". "It's got all the roots," he said. "But it's also got a psychedelic feel," he added. The Day-Glo country ballad "Oh Josephine" is, Chris said, "one of the best things Rich [Robinson, guitar] and I have ever written." But at the end, it veers into a long finale of exultant, battling guitars, played by Rich and Luther Dickinson of the NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS, who has officially joined the CROWES with this album. "Hey, we're THE BLACK CROWES," Chris said with a smile poking through his gold-rush-miner beard. "We gotta tack on a three-minute coda."
