Christopher Cross new album Doctor Faith, is to be released May 10 by Eagle Rock Entertainment (through earMusic). It marks the first all-new studio offering from Christopher Cross in 12 years.
Thirty-one years, five Grammys and an Oscar later, Doctor Faith is a dramatic return. The production, for the first time, is guitar-oriented, rather than keyboard-oriented. Michael McDonald is on hand to give voice to the title character.
“This album not only feels like a new chapter to my career,” says Cross, “it feels like starting a whole new book.”
Cross has dedicated the album to Joni Mitchell “for a lifetime of inspiration.”
Influenced by Mitchell’s idiosyncratic way with a lyric line, Cross, and long time songwriting partner Rob Meurer, have written songs sure to be embraced by fans.
Cross landed on the music scene in 1980, winning the Grammy for “Best New Artist.” “Sailing” and “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” were both #1s, the latter co-written with Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, and the late Peter Allen. Cross charted eight times between 1980 and 1983. He has eight albums to his credit, as well as a number of other packages.
