The Black Crowes perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live

The Black Crowes performed the classic track, “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone”, on the May 3 episode of ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The band’s version of the tune – originally done by The Undisputed Truth and made famous by The Temptations – is featured on their newly-released covers EP, “1972”; the project also features updated versions of songs issued that same year by The Rolling Stones, T. Rex, Rod Stewart, David Bowie and Little Feat.

"The year 1972 was a watershed moment, some of the greatest rock and roll songs ever made came out of that year,” explains Chris Robinson. “To get our band back together in the studio, it had to be a celebration of rock and roll. This record is about love and devotion to something that makes us feel good. We hope that it makes fans around the world feel the same."

"1972" is now available exclusively on Amazon Music digitally; vinyl and physical CD sets are also set for release everywhere on May 6 via the band's label Silver Arrow.
