Sheryl Crow has appeared at the NPR Tiny Desk – watch the video above.
The 35-minute performance features some hits from across Crow’s decades-spanning career, as well as some tracks from her latest record Threads, with some excellent slide guitar playing thrown in for good measure. The concert was part of NPR’s Tiny Desk Fest, a four-night series of longer-than-usual Tiny Desks broadcast live on the internet.
Crow recently also spoke about her views on music streaming, saying that she feels sorry for young artists who are caught up in the fast-paced world of the internet-driven music industry – something also highlighted in this performance, with Crow telling the audience: “I heard a big thing on NPR about the shrinking of the attention span and how now, with pop songs, everything has like six seconds before you gotta change it, because the kids swipe over. I’m just gonna tell you right now: We’re dinosaurs. … And while the kids are all writing fast food – which is super-cool ’cause it tastes great, super-filling – we’re sort of still writing salmon. We’re the songwriters that are here to tax your attention span.”
Crow also recently saw the announcement of a signature Country Western Supreme from Gibson.
