"Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings" is the fifth studio album by
Counting Crows, released in the United States on March 25, 2008. It is thematically divided into two sides: the rock musicof "Saturday Nights" and the more country-influenced "Sunday Mornings."
The "Saturday Nights" portion was produced by
Gil Norton(who also produced the band's second album, " Recovering the Satellites"), while "Sunday Mornings" was produced by Brian Deck, perhaps best known for his production work on Modest Mouse's album " The Moon and Antarctica."
January 16, 2008, the band released a digital single as a free download on their official website. It comprises the songs "1492" (as the A-side) and "When I Dream of Michelangelo" (as the B-side). The latter song appeared at the end of an episode of the ABC series "Brothers & Sisters."
The lead commercial single, "
You Can't Count on Me," was released to radio on February 4, 2008. A music video for the song was released on March 20, 2008. Though a second single has yet to be officially released, "Come Around" has garnered heavy airplay on the Triple A format, topping the chart the week of September 19, 2008.
To promote the album, the band performed on "
Private Sessions," " Good Morning America," " The Late Show with David Letterman," " The View", and " The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson."
The album debuted at number 3 on the "
Billboard 200", the band's highest peak since " Recovering the Satellites". The cover depicts the Empire State Buildingin New York City.
