Back in late 2016, Rich Robinson of the The Black Crowes announced a brand-new spinoff project called The Magpie Salute. To join him for the new band, Robinson recruited former Black Crowes members including guitarist/vocalist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien in addition to Rich Robinson Band member Joe Magistro and lead vocalist, John Hogg. The band recently announced their debut studio album, High Water I–due out Friday, August 10th–and shared the first single, “Send Me An Omen”. Today, The Magpie Salute have publicly released the second single, “For The Wind”, after exclusively sharing it with Billboard last week.“It’s a lot about the systems in place in the world,” Rich Robinson describes in an interview about the new release. “The systems that have been in place as it pertains to creation of any kind. Music or books or fine arts or anything down the line have been flooded with greed and with bankers that get involve and tell artists how they can sell more if they write this way. And then basically you’re just an entertainer; you let these pseudo-cynical people write these songs about jeans and Chevys and beer and whatever the hell people write about. That system being in place is constantly at odds with natural creativity. People see they can make a little bit of money, you make them a lot of money they start inserting themselves more because they want you to keep making them money. It’s always been that way, but it seems more fervent than ever now.” Listen to the track below:The Magpie Salute – “For The Wind”<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Produced by Rich Robinson and recorded at Dark Horse Studios in Nashville, TN, the 12-song High Water I album represents a musical union of swaggering rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelic blues, and campfire-worthy storytelling.
