Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings, the new Counting Crows album, and the band’s fifth, is due March 25 on Geffen/Interscope, produced by Gil Norton and Brian Deck. Described as, “Your average brilliant, unsparing rock & roll song cycle about the high life and the low life, about sin and whatever the hell follows. 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 produced by Brian Deck whose past credits include Modest Mouse and Iron & Wine.”

Lead singer Adam Duritz says of the Crows’ newie, “[it's] about dissolution and disintegration. It’s about when Saturday night happens and you lose all sense of yourself. And it’s about when you wake up Sunday morning and look back at the wreck you’ve made of your life and you think, ‘How can I possibly fix this? How can I ever climb out of this hole?’ And then you start to try and climb.”

  1. Should have gone the way of that Specials tune, with different days:

    I go out on Saturday night/I come home on Sunday morning
