Counting Crows have signed to Universal’s Capitol Records division in the US, so that’s something. The deal will facilitate the release of the band’s new LP, ‘Somewhere Under Wonderland’, their first since 2008 and seventh ever, later this year.

Essentially repeating that, only phrasing it a bit differently, CC lead singer Adam Duritz says: “I’m happy to announce that the new Counting Crows album will be coming out this Fall on Capitol Records!!! Just like The Beatles!!!”.

Yes, exactly like them. Capitol Music Group CEO Steve Barnett, meanwhile, had this to add: “It’s not surprising that Counting Crows have built and maintained such a successful career for more than 20 years. The solid bond between the band and their audience has been forged through their great recordings and exciting live performances, and that relationship will continue with the release of ‘Somewhere Under Wonderland’ and their forthcoming tour”.
