Somebody call the doctor. The Doctor of Faith, that is!
The voice rides high. Melodic. Beautiful. Everything everybody ever loved about Christopher Cross, who sang "Sailing," the heart crushing "Think of Laura" and "Arthur's Theme," is on display in the 13 exquisite tracks of Doctor Faith, being released May 10th by Eagle Rock Entertainment (through earMusic). It marks the first all-new studio offering from Christopher Cross in 12 years. Welcome back, Mr., er, Dr. Cross.
31 years, five Grammys and an Oscar later, Doctor Faith marks a dramatic return from Cross. His songwriting has never been sharper or more observant. His singing is better than it's ever been. 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. CC and MM? Holy '80s dude singers!
"This album not only feels like a new chapter to my career,” said Cross. "It feels like starting a whole new book." Read on, folks!
Cross has dedicated the album to Joni Mitchell "for a lifetime of inspiration," as he was Influenced by Mitchell's idiosyncratic way with a lyric line, and the guts to delve deep.
