New Orleans–based singer-songwriter Esther Rose has released a cover of Sheryl Crow’s 1998 track “My Favorite Mistake.” The track was recorded live to live at New Orleans’ Tigermen Den.

“When people ask what kind of music I play I generally tell them ‘country & folk,’ but the truth is my band has a secret genre for my songwriting style which they call ‘’60s/’90s’; this weird blend of late-’60s folk and early-’90s alternative rock,” Rose said in a statement. “‘My Favorite Mistake’ somehow slides right into that comfort zone. My band and I had a lot of fun coming up with our own arrangement; Dan Cutler is playing that iconic guitar riff on upright bass, we slowed down the tempo, and I changed a couple words to make it a little more hopeful.”

Last year, Rose released her sophomore record, You Made It This Far, via Father/Daughter Records.

Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit has released a new song titled “The Good Fight” that features Sheryl Crow.

The track runs nearly eight minutes. Schmit didn’t reveal whether the release is connected to an upcoming album. “I recorded a new song, “The Good Fight,” with my friend Sheryl Crow,” he said. “There couldn’t be any better time than right now to release this.”

Speaking in 2017 about his attitude toward songwriting, Schmit said that “there’s less time in front of me now than there is behind me, and I do think about my mortality a lot more. It’s those age-old questions, and I just try and put them into some kind of song form and hope that it resonates with others.”

He said with Eagles that he thinks “the friction was part of the creativity. I’m sure it was. … I was the guy just trying to make things okay. I did what I can to keep the peace. Sometimes there’s not much you could do with outside situations, and you just have to go with it.”

Earlier this year, Crow also collaborated with Schmit’s Eagles bandmate Joe Walsh, bringing him in for her song “Still the Good Old Days,” which is featured on Threads, a duets album with other big names.

“Many of these people, I owned their records when I was seven and eight years old,” she said. “Who would have thought a young girl from a tiny town in Missouri would wind up working with these people and having relationships with them?
