After a year of being prohibited to get together with family and friends, David Crosby released an album that feels like that long-awaited reunion. Ever since his early Laurel Canyon days, the singer-songwriter has always been the type to enjoy being surrounded by people.

Named after a song by his old friend Joni Mitchell, Crosby's new record, For Free, was released just last week. It features collaborations with Michael McDonald, Donald Fagen and Sarah Jarosz, including an album cover painted by Joan Baez. Crosby also returns to music with his son, co-writer and producer James Raymond, who has been working closely with his father during his prolific last few years.

In this episode of World Cafe, Crosby joins us for a chat and listening session of songs from his album.
