If you were around in the '70s, you probably remember how ubiquitous Jackson Browne was on both AM and FM radio at the time.

Now a star-studded roster of his colleagues have gathered together to produce a two-disc tribute album, Looking into You: A Tribute to Jackson Browne, releasing this April 1st. And it’s no joke. Look for tunes covered by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Lyle Lovett, Lucinda Williams, Don Henley, Joan Osborne, Shawn Colvin and more.
  
Co-producer Tamara Saviano tells us more about this intriguing project. “In the past I used a house band and would create the arrangements ahead of time. But for this album we relied solely on the artists to create their own vision for the songs and gave them complete control over the instrumentation and arrangement. It was a challenge but it struck me how excited everyone was to honor Jackson in their own way.”


You can check out Lyle Lovett’s take on “Rosie” over at Rolling Stone.
