Counting Crows
On March 25, Counting Crows will release their fifth studio album (and their first in five years), Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings, on Geffen/Interscope.

This is an album with two distinct yet deeply related halves. Saturday Nights -- the album's angry, electric, dissolute opening salvo -- was produced by Gil Norton (The Pixies, Foo Fighters). The more acoustic and folk-influenced Sunday Mornings was pro...
