Black Crowes guitarist to release third solo album

Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson has signed a new record deal and will release his third solo album, “The Ceaseless Light”, next spring.

Robinson has signed with Brooklyn indie label The End Records for the project, and plans to tour in support of it in 2014, reports Billboard.

"(The End founder) Andreas Katsambas is a long time music fan and has some very forward ideas on how to get music out there,” says Robinson, “but more importantly for me, how to allow the artist to create pure music without the inevitable commercial vs art clash that comes from a more traditional approach. All of Andreas' team shares these qualities. It's going to be great."

Other artists on The End Records roster include Anvil, Badly Drawn Boy, Fatboy Slim and Juliette Lewis.

Robinson has two solo studio albums to his credit to date, including 2004’s “Paper” and 2011’s “Through A Crooked Sun.”

The guitarist has been on the road this year with the reunited Black Crowes, who wrap up their 2013 live dates December 14 in San Francisco.
