New Counting Crows Tracks

Counting Crows have made two new tracks available from their upcoming,"Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings," the band's fifth studio album. The album, due out March 25 will be split into two distinct sides, not an uncommon practice in the archaic days of vinyl, Saturday Nights will feature the more amped up rock tunes and Sunday Mornings will have a more mellow acoustic feel.

1492 is speculated to be the 6th and final track on the Saturday Mornings side. It sounds like your typical Crows' rock, with a searing Neil Young & Crazy Horse guitar solo.

When I Dream of Michelangelo is been rumored to be the second track on the Sunday Mornings side. It sounds like it could be on any of the band's previous records, which is not meant to be a jab. The band really hasn't ever broken new ground, but they continue to write solid songs and to be a great live band.

In short, if you like Counting Crows, you'll probably like these tracks. If you have always hated them, I don't think that either of these tracks will change your mind.
