After a lengthy, nearly two-decade run with one record label, the Counting Crows have decided to make a fresh start in 2014 with a new label, Capitol Records, and their first album of new original material since 2008. The set, Somewhere Under Wonderland, made its official debut this week following the release of several new singles that have won critical and fan acclaim.
The band, led by Adam Duritz, was able to recently try out some of the new songs live in concert for the audience's approval.
Here, Yahoo Music has the very first exclusive look at one of these, “Cover Up the Sun,” recorded live at Atlantic City's Borgata Event Center.
Frontman Adam Duritz took the time to explain the history of the song in a recent interview with Yahoo Music (watch below, and see more of the interview here). Watch to learn more about this poignant tune and the inspirations behind it.
