Guitarist Rich Robinson is stepping out from his main band, the blues-rockers the Black Crowes, for a new solo album, The Ceaseless Sight. Robinson's third solo outing will be released by Brooklyn's The End Records in the spring of 2014.

Black Crowes to End Hiatus With Spring Tour Dates

According to Billboard, this is Robinson's first release on the independent label, which already features an eclectic array of artists: indie-rockers Art Brut, metal band Cradle of Filth and more.

"[The End founder] Andreas Katsambas is a longtime music fan and has some very forward ideas on how to get music out there, but more importantly for me, how to allow the artist to create pure music without the inevitable commercial vs. art clash that comes from a more traditional approach," Robinson told Billboard. "All of Andreas' team shares these qualities. It's going to be great."

Robinson co-founded the Black Crowes in Atlanta, Georgia back in 1989. In 2010, the band released their most recent album, Croweology, a double-disc set of rerecorded acoustic tracks; after that, then entered an "indefinite hiatus" until this year's world tour, dubbed "Lay Down With Number 13," which will wrap up on December 14th with a show in San Francisco, California. Robinson will hit the road again in 2014 with a national tour to promote The Ceaseless Sight.

Song Stories

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
