In advance of their “Lay Down With Number 13” tour, the Black Crowes have released their cover of Bob Dylan’s "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You."

The country-rock ballad originally appeared on Dylan’s 1969 album Nashville Skyline, and has since been covered by artists including Johnny Cash, Jeff Beck, Cher and Sugarland. Now, the hit will be featured on the Black Crowes’ Wiser for the Time (Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records), set for release on March 19th.

"The Black Crowes have always covered a lot of Bob's songs," Chris Robinson, lead vocalist and guitarist, tells Rolling Stone. "In my mind, this great tapestry of music we are involved in cannot be weaved without sharing Bob's mighty threads!"

Tickets for Lay Down With Number 13, went on sale January 11. The first 15 shows – including dates in London, Chicago, Nashville, Boston, Atlanta and New York City – sold out immediately, and the band has since promised an announcement about a second batch of dates starting in May.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
