Produced by Counting Crows and Shawn Dealey, Underwater Sunshine features tracks written by artists such as Big Star, Gram Parsons, Tender Mercies, Kasey Anderson and The Faces. Each rendition offers an entire spectrum of human emotion, delivered with the conviction and intense honesty the band is known for.
As their first independent release, it was the right time for the Crows to make this album. “If you wonder why we didn’t just write our own record, it’s simply because we wanted to do THIS one,” says Duritz.
In the spirit of being an independent band, the Crows are giving away a free download of their new song, “Mercy” on http://www.countingcrows.com/
In addition, the band recently partnered with San Francisco’s BitTorrent Inc., offering four songs for free download, Adam Duritz's liner notes, and high-resolution album artwork as a BitTorrent Bundle aimed directly to the young, digitally savvy users of the BitTorrent and µTorrent software. The tracks in the bundle include: “Untitled (Love Song)”, “Like Teenage Gravity”, “Hospital”, and “Meet on the Ledge”, and all are available for immediate download.
