    Steve Martin—the comedic icon responsible for The Jerk and, err, The Pink Panther 2—has announced his very own album. Available as of today, The Crow features 15 original cuts and guest spots from Dolly Parton, Earl Scruggs, Vince Gill and more.

    "I know what my specialty is—playing songs I write, and if I'm asked to step outside that specialty, I can get a little nervous," Martin told Billboard. "It's a dichotomy; on one hand I can play my own songs with anybody, but if I got into a really serious bluegrass crowd, I'd play a couple standards and retire."

    The Crow:
    1. Daddy Played the Banjo
    2. Pitkin County Turnaround
    3. Hoedown at Alice's
    4. Late for School
    5. Tin Roof
    6. Words Unspoken
    7. Pretty Flowers
    8. Wally on the Run
    9. Freddie's Lilt
    10. Saga of the Old West
    11. Clawhammer Medley
    12. Calico Train
    13. Banana Banjo
    14. Blue River Waltz
    15. The Crow
