Judy Collins and Stephen Stills first met in 1967 and quickly fell into a tumultuous love affair that would be immortalized in Stephen’s song “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes.” Out September 22 on Wildflower / Cleopatra Records, ‘Stills & Collins’ marks the first album the two icons and longtime friends have recorded together. The loving, playful and emotional album finds Judy and Stephen performing refreshed versions of songs that tie their whimsical 50-year history together, plus a brand new song penned by Judy for this album, and a refined take by both artists on classics by Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Traveling Wilburys and more. Judy and Stephen have announced their first-ever tour together as well, which begins July 26 and goes through Fall 2017.
