After a two-decade break from solo records, David Crosby is set to release a new album early next year. But he has no illusions about ‘Croz’ generating much interest among younger generations. 

“I don’t think kids are gonna dig it, but I’m not making it for them,” Crosby told Rolling Stone. “I’m making it for me. I have this stuff that I need to get off my chest.” His last solo album was 1993’s ‘Thousand Roads.’

Crosby — a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with both the Byrds and Crosby Stills & Nash — worked with his son James Raymond and co-producer Daniel Garcia on the album, which will be released independently on Jan. 28, 2014.

Among the guest stars are Dire Straits‘ Mark Knopfler, who plays on ‘What’s Broken’ and Wynton Marsalis, who adds trumpet to ‘Holding on to Nothing.’

The 11-track ‘Croz’ was recorded at Jackson Browne‘s studio as well as at Raymond’s home studio. “We could have gone and gotten a deal,” Crosby said of the indie project. “But everybody in the music business is very leery about the big companies and what kind of lifespan they might have. Most people are doing it on their own, so that’s what we did.”

Crosby will launch a tour the same day in support of the record, performing the album in its entirety during the shows’ first half and then closing with a mix of songs from his lengthy career.
