Meanwhile, here’s some deets on their new album, which has songs that you can listen to online and a few tracks to download for free:

Produced by Counting Crows and Shawn Dealey, Underwater Sunshine features tracks written by artists such as Big Star, Gram Parsons, Tender Mercies, Kasey Anderson and The Faces. Each rendition offers an entire spectrum of human emotion, delivered with the conviction and intense honesty the band is known for.

As their first independent release, it was the right time for the Crows to make this album. “If you wonder why we didn’t just write our own record, it’s simply because we wanted to do THIS one,” says Duritz.

Highlighting the independent approach to the record, the Crows are giving away a free download of their new song, “Mercy” on

In addition, the band recently partnered with San Francisco’s BitTorrent Inc., offering four songs for free download, Adam Duritz’s liner notes, and high-resolution album artwork as a BitTorrent Bundle aimed directly to the young, digitally savvy users of the BitTorrent and µTorrent software. The tracks in the bundle include: “Untitled (Love Song)”, “Like Teenage Gravity”, “Hospital”, and “Meet on the Ledge”, and all are available for immediate download here.

    My favorite Counting Crows song is Rain King, August and Everything After was my favorite album my senior year and I remember bouncing around to this song in my friends room while we yelled the lyrics. I had quite a crush on Adam Duritz!

    My favorite Counting Crows song is probably Untitled Love Song, because the lyrics fit a time in my life.

  4. ashley says

    Mr Jones… because I enjoy cranking up the car radio and singing as loud as possible to it :)

  5. joni says

    They Paved Paradise is one of my faves. It brings back memories of working with a couple of my friends. We would sing this real loud to annoy the bosses.

  6. Nica says

    Goodnight Elisabeth is my favorite! I LOVE the lyrics and the melody is so beautiful. I’m a huge fan!

  7. says

    My favorite song is ‘Round Here’ from the album August & Everything After. It’s a song that I think everyone can relate to. Adam is a lyrical genius. No one has the ability like him to express in such beautiful detail of human nightmares we often withstand in life.

    I like Round Here. My mom always used to listen to it and makes me think of the fun times we had while I was growing up.

  9. jessica schueler says

    Oh wow that is a tough question! Counting Crows is one of my favorite bands. ‘Long December’ is such a sad sweet song, but ‘Hanging Around’ has so much meaning to me.
