The Magpie Salute ft. members of the Black Crowes announce debut album June 9th

The Magpie Salute have announced the release of their self-titled debut album on June 9th through Eagle Rock, Entertainment. Produced by Crowes guitarist and co-founder Rich Robinson, the musically tight and expansive album was recorded live-in-the-studio in front of an audience at Applehead Recording in Woodstock, New York, except for the brand-new studio track ‘Omission’.

The album carries special significance as it marks the last recorded work by Eddie Harsch, the late Black Crowes keyboardist whose signature sound and gentle soul are woven into The Magpie Salute.

There’s a wide open musical freedom on the band’s debut album, reflecting the musicians’ wide-ranging roots in the diverse selections of tracks, with half of the 10 songs coming in at over seven minutes in length.

The new album offers fresh takes of The Black Crowes’ ‘What Is Home’ and ‘Wiser Time’ and new interpretations of songs ‘Comin’ Home’ by Delaney and Bonnie, Bobby Hutcherson’s ‘Goin’ Down South’, War’s ‘War Drums’, Pink Floyd’s ‘Fearless’, The Faces’ ‘Glad and Sorry’, Bob Marley’s ‘Time Will Tell’, (which The Black Crowes covered on their second album), and the traditional song ‘Ain’t No More Cane’.

The band will also be making their UK debut next month, with four back-to-back shows at London’s Under The Bridge starting on April 12th. The opening night sold-out within minutes of the tickets going on sale and with only a few left for the Thursday and Friday shows, a fourth show was added.  The UK run follows the roaring success of four sold-out dates at The Gramercy Theatre in New York in January.
