Rick Rubin To Produce New Crosby, Stills and Nash Album of Classic Covers

Crosby, Stills & Nash
are said to be producing a covers album, their first release in 14 years. It's been a massive thirty nine years since their first self-titled album.

Rick Rubin, the man who made Neil Diamond sound great and Johnny Cash sound even better than before is said to be producing

Rubin is no stranger to cover albums (eg: Rage Against the Machine's Renegades. Johnny Cash's American Series, Slayer's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida")

"Rick Rubin's a brilliant man,and what he wants is an album with no CSN songs. He wants to do an album of all the songs we love, all the songs we wish we've written. It's brilliant from this point of view because we usually wait five years to record an album. This way there's no pressure." (Graham Nash)

Apparently the band initially proposed 60 songs which has now been culled to 20
