It’s been 5 years since [tag]Counting Crows[/tag]’s marvelous last album, Hard Candy dropped on a hot summer day of 2002. Now the Californian seven piece band, are preparing to release their highly anticipated followup, titled “Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings.”It’s a really different album, in terms of concept, like nothing the band’s done before. In short it’s a record centered around redemption and regret, being split into two parts (it’s all on a CD though), one side being comprised of rockers (Saturday Nights), while the other is packed with more country/folk like songs (Sunday Mornings).
“Saturday night is when you sin and Sunday is when you regret. Sinning is often done very loudly, angrily, bitterly, violently.” adds frontman Adam Duritz
