It’s been almost 20 years since Sheryl Crow’s Tuesday Night Music Club stormed up the charts, turning the former backup singer into an overnight sensation with catchy singles like “Leaving Las Vegas” and “All I Wanna Do.” She was a reliable hitmaker throughout the ’90s, playing pop music with a classic-rock edge. While 2008’s introspective and subdued Detours didn’t resonate with fans, the Missouri native has persevered. Her breezy new single, “Summer Day,” features a soulful horn section and serves as introduction to 100 Miles From Memphis, where Crow explores old-school R&B with a little help from guests like Justin Timberlake and Keith Richards. The album comes out next month.
