Sheryl Crow took the stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (Jan. 24) to introduce fans to her brand-new single, “Easy.” It’s the first song from her upcoming country album, which has yet to be given a title or official release date.
“Easy” is all about what the title says. “Sit in the sun and sip tequila all day,” Sheryl sings. “We’ll play Jack Johnson, he’s the new Don Ho.” But as she also notes in the song, an exotic location isn’t required for all this kicking back. “Who needs Mexico? Baby let’s stay home.”
Sheryl’s new album will be her first in two years, and as she said in a press statement, she’s “excited” about it — and about being on her new label. “I believe a lot of my songs would probably be played on country radio today if they were just being released. The country music community has been incredibly welcoming and I’m excited to work with John Esposito and his team at Warner Music Nashville.”
Esposito, for his part, had praise for Sheryl as well, saying that she’s “made a masterpiece” that he’s sure “country radio and fans from all across the world are going to love.”
Sheryl stuck around Kimmel to perform a second new song as well, called “Shotgun.”
