David Crosby has made track Things We Do For Love available to stream. The song is taken from his forthcoming fifth solo album Lighthouse, due out on October 21.

The album comes just two years after the 74-year-old singer/guitarist released Croz.

He tells Wall Street Journal: “It’s a very fruitful time. I don’t know how to explain this, but, most people my age have petered out. They don’t have a writing surge.

“My writing always comes in bursts, but for the last couple years, I’ve had this inexplicable surge. Probably the densest and longest surge I’ve had, which at this stage in the game is a miracle.

“I can’t explain why that would happen except that I’m happy. I’m a very happy guy. That may be the key to the whole deal.”

Further release details will be revealed in due course.

David Crosby will commence a North American tour next month.
