World Cafe Playlist for 09/14/2021

Counting Crows join host Raina Douris

The first Counting Crows album in seven years isn’t your typical “album.” Butter Miracle: Suite One, as the title suggests, is a suite: four songs that flow fluidly into one another. It may be a new style for the band, but Counting Crows’ signature sound is still there. Frontman Adam Duritz joins host Raina Douris for a conversation about the record, as well as the Instagram cooking series he started during the pandemic. Plus, Counting Crows perform new songs –– and an old favorite –– on this encore edition of the World Cafe.
