As for the Butter Miracle EP, the 18-minute suite of music came about after some particularly inspired sessions from Duritz:

Written on a remote farm in the United Kingdom’s countryside in 2019, the four-track, 18-minute suite was artfully composed so that each track flows without interruption from one song to the next. The result, “The Tall Grass,” which leads to “Elevator Boots,” which segues into “Angel on 14th Street,” whose climatic crash is the first power chord to the intro to the final song, “Bobby and the Rat-Kings.”

 

In a recent chat with Rolling Stone, Duritz gave some insight into his creative inspiration — which has found his creative well refreshed, so to speak, by a sense of personal fulfillment:

“I’ve been quite happy,” he says. “I’ve been in a relationship for four or five years now — one that is very satisfying, and healthy. Most of my experiences in my life had been what it’s like to be alone and live alone. And that’s not the case anymore. That’s a big change for me, to really come to the idea that maybe something’s more important than writing songs.”

The end result is an interesting addition to the Counting Crows catalog. Give it a listen:
