As longtime fans of Crystal Bowersox — the American Idol vet with the soulful pipes even headlined Idolator’s Pray For Pop Party at SXSW in 2011 — so we were stoked to get a first look at her much-anticipated second studio album, a follow-up to 2010′s Farmer’s Daughter. Now signed to indie label Shanachie Records, Bowersox is teaming up with major collaborators like Jakob Dylan and rock legend Steve Berlin to shape the sound of her new album — and we’re taking you behind-the-scenes with exclusive footage of Bowersox in the studio.
“This record means a lot to me,” Bowersox told us. “I’ve learned so much in the process of making it. Working with Steve Berlin was comfortable and easy — the guy flows like water. And Jakob Dylan? I wish we could keep making this record over and over again… I certainly hope the listener will love it.” Bowersox’s new album is due in March. Watch up top.
