Stephen Stills and Judy Collins Announce New Album and Tour
Now that it looks like Crosby, Stills & Nash won't be getting back together any time soon, Stephen Stills is taking the opportunity to connect with another old friend from the '60s: Judy Collins.
The singer-songwriters have announced a new album and tour that mark their 50 years of friendship. Stills & Collins, their first album together, comes out on Sept. 22. The tour, which includes three months of dates, kicks off on July 27 in Highland Park, Ill., and runs through Nov. 4 in Brooks, Calif.
You can see the full list of tour dates below.
Stills and Collins began dating in 1967. He wrote "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," from Crosby, Stills & Nash's self-titled debut album, for her. They've remained friends all these years, but they've never recorded together until now.
The upcoming album includes reworked songs from the pair's pasts, like “Who Knows Where the Time Goes,” the title track from Collins' 1968 album, and "So Begins the Task," from Stills' 1972 debut with Manassas.
They also cover songs by Bob Dylan ("Girl From the North Country"), Leonard Cohen ("Everybody Knows") and the Traveling Wilburys ("Handle With Care"). Collins contributed one new song, "River of Gold," to the project as well.
The album is available for pre-order now.
