    KEITH RICHARDS RELEASES CROSSEYED HEART

    FIRST SOLO ALBUM IN OVER 20 YEARS OUT SEPTEMBER 18TH

    July 9, 2015 – New York – Keith Richards will release his eagerly anticipated CROSSEYED HEART, his third solo album and his first in over 20 years, September 18th on Republic Records.

     

    CROSSEYED HEART, a fifteen track masterclass encompassing everything that makes Keith Richards one of the 20th century’s most celebrated talents, is a 5* musical journey that takes in reggae, rock, country and the blues.

     

    The first taste of CROSSEYED HEART will be unveiled on July 17th with the explosive first single, “Trouble,” a taut guitar based slice of heaven featuring Richards on electric and acoustic guitars, bass, lead and backup vocals. He is richly supported by old friends, drummer Steve Jordan, guitarist Waddy Wachtel and Bernard Fowler on backup vocals. The song was written by and produced by Keith and Steve Jordan.

     

    “I had a ball making this new record and working with Steve Jordan and Waddy Wachtel again. There’s nothing like walking into a studio and having absolutely no idea what you’re going to come out with on the other end. If you're looking for ‘Trouble,’ you've come to the right place.”

     

    Keith wrote or co-wrote the majority of the tracks on CROSSEYED HEART, many with co-producer Steve Jordan.Highlights include the country tinged ache of “Robbed Blind”, the reggae flavored “Love Overdue,” and the aptly named “Blues In The Morning.” Richards collaborates with several artists including a captivating duet with Norah Jones on the soulful ballad “Illusion” which she co-wrote.

     

    Keith Richards, who plays electric and acoustic guitars, bass, piano and vocals on the album, is also joined by guitarist Waddy Wachtel, keyboardist Ivan Neville and background singer Sarah Dash, part of the X-Pensive Winos, who accompanied Richards on his previous solo records.

Hi Keith, wow! i was listening to "Trouble" and it sent shivers down my spine. Had to play again and again because it´s addictively good. It´s great song and playing and singing but first and foremost it got "That Feel". Just awesome. Thanks and blessings Keith,
Steini.

One more thing, I remember an interview with either you or Mick or the both of you, when Mick first met you as a tike asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up, and you supposedly said, "A cowboy". If anyone needs to do a cover of, "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys", it's you. I have always wanted to tell you that. I guess this is as close as I am going to get, ha. Hope you read these. God bless ya mate

Sounds nice and raw, which I couldn't or wouldn't expect. If you release a single maybe a b-side of you and Nora, doing Gram's, "Hickory Wind"? :) Also, have a great recipe for Shep Pie, all depends if you like a hint of spicy though..Southern cooking and all :)

Really hoping you do some Solo Live shows in Europe Keef !!! Saw you in Rotterdam 1992 and it was great. Cant wait either for your new cd.
Saw you with the Stones in 2014 in Stockholm and been a huge fan since 1973.

Please do a show at the Paradiso, Amsterdam.
One love jeroen
