Sheryl Crow has supplied us with hit after hit, and now she’s letting us behind the scenes with her new documentary Sheryl. And lucky us, she’s even releasing a 2CD release entitled Sheryl: Music From The Feature Documentary to accompany it.
The documentary showcases all the ups and downs of Sheryl‘s iconic career. Though successful, her years in the limelight have seen Sheryl battle with depression, cancer, sexism, and many other obstacles. Despite this, she has continued to create music that inspires and heals as well as speaks to her struggles. We are so grateful she shared her gift with us through it all and that this documentary has been created to celebrate her.
I am excited for the premiere of my documentary. I hope people will find strength and courage through my story. It was a journey through years and years of incredible memories, and I am proud of the beautiful documentary that Amy Scott made about my life.
The documentary has just premiered at SXSW prior to its release on Showtime later in the Spring. We can’t wait to watch it for ourselves and hope it will be made more widely available, but until then, we’ve rounded up some songs from the album we can’t wait to relive. There is so much beautiful music to choose from in a discography as iconic as Sheryl‘s, but we’ve given it a go. Here are five songs from the album that made us feel all the feels. Warning, it’s a whole rollercoaster of emotions.
‘Real Gone (Live)’
This song makes you want to blast it through the speakers with the top down and the wind in your hair. Major road trip vibes. It’s no surprise then that this one is on the Cars movie soundtrack. Iconic. Rock chick Sheryl is at her finest here, and the live version brings whole new energy to the track because, trust us, Sheryl can put on a show. Take a moment to rock out with us 🤘🏻
‘Prove Me Wrong (Feat. Stevie Nicks & Maren Morris)’
How much more iconic girl power can you get than Sheryl Crow, Maren Morris, and Stevie Nicks?? We’re headbanging to this one, good old-fashioned country rock’n’roll. These three women all have such powerhouse vocals, but they effortlessly complement each other. While Sheryl has performed this live with both Maren and Stevie independently, we hope one day we’ll get to experience the electricity of the three of them performing this together. If you’ve not heard this one before, get it on your playlists now because it’ll make you feel like a total boss.
‘I Shall Believe’
This one has always gotten our throat tingling and our eyes a little misty. However, since the release of The Haunting of Bly Manor, it’s given us a whole new reason to cry. *Spoilers ahead*
The song is the perfect soundtrack to the tragic yet beautiful love story of Jamie and Dani. A haunting song for a haunting romance. Give us a second to pick ourselves off the floor because we’ve been a mess since seeing this fan edit.
There’s something so calming yet gutwrenching about this song. “Please say honestly you won’t give up on me, and I shall believe.” How can you feel so many things at once?? We’ve still yet to recover from this one. So give us a second to wipe our tears away before the next song.
‘Soak Up The Sun’
Back to an earlier album now, this one is from Sheryl’s 2002 album C’mon C’mon. The song is about being grateful for what you’ve got, and that material objects are not what makes life. It’s sun and friends and fun, and that’s what makes life so brilliant. The music video is also full of sun and summery visuals. It’s making us want to pick up a surfboard and hit the waves with Sheryl and her friends! We can smell the sunscreen from here!
From the 1993 album Tuesday Night Music Club, the final song on our list is ‘Strong Enough.’ The song is about someone going through a tough chapter in their life and feeling like they’re a bit much for someone else to handle. She’s asking her lover to take her exactly as she is, flaws and all. We think this is something we can all relate to. Everyone just wants to be loved and accepted. This is something that makes Sheryl‘s music so lovable and accessible to all ages. She writes about emotions that are universal experiences.
Sheryl: Music From The Feature Documentary comes out on May 6th, and we can’t wait to relive all our fave Sheryl songs alongside the documentary. There are also three newly recorded songs that we’re excited to get our hands on. In the meantime, you can stream all of Sheryl’s music here!
