David Crosby: “My new solo album is like sex – it’s warm and wet… and it feels really good”

David Crosby reveals that his new solo album is “like sex”, in the new issue of Uncut (dated November 2013), out now.

The Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young singer-songwriter explains that the forthcoming record, tentatively titled Dangerous Night, and produced by Dan Garcia and Crosby’s son James Raymond, is hard to label.

“Putting labels on this music is very tough,” he says. “It’s like trying to describe sex – it’s warm and wet, you go in and out and it really feels good. Somehow words just don’t convey the experience. Let’s just say that most people will be surprised by this record.”

The album will be Crosby’s fourth solo release, following 1993’s Thousand Roads.

The singer-songwriter takes us through some of the tracks on his new album, and also talks about the release of a new CSNY live album recorded in 1974 in the piece.

The November 2013 issue of Uncut is out now.
