Crosby, Stills & Nash are just getting started

Just because you’re turning 40 doesn’t mean you have to slow down. Take Crosby, Stills & Nash for example. In addition to its never-ending 40th anniversary tour this summer, the legendary trio is gearing up for not one, but two new releases.

First up will be the aptly titled Crosby, Stills & Nash Demos on June 2nd. The title says it all on this one: the 12-track effort will consist of demos taken from the early years of the band’s career (1968-1971). Included will be a harmonizing recording of the Nash-penned hit “Marrakesh Express”, along with several demos from the trio’s respective solo careers.

Then, on the aforementioned summer sour, Crosby, Stills & Nash will reportedly begin road testing another new forthcoming effort, this in the form of Rick Rubin-produced cover album. According to Live Daily, the yet-to-be-titled release will consist of between 15 and 20 tracks, six or seven of which will be played on the nightly basis during the tour.

Per Graham Nash via Live Daily:

“It’s been a very interesting time choosing. I went to my friend Joel Bernstein’s house in Oakland. Joel is our archivist. He knows more about Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Crosby, Stills & Nash than anybody in the world. I said, ‘Here’s what we need to do. I need 50 songs that (a) have a great melody (b) say something and (c) can be Crosby Stills and Nashed to death. That’s what we need to search for…

We ended up with 15 to 20 songs that we all loved.”

Specific details relating to the album are still forthcoming, but it’s likely CS&N will likely begin work on it following the trio’s remaining dates in late September.
