Django CrosbyDavid Crosby didn’t have to look far for assistance on his new album, Sky Trails.

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee tells USA Today he collaborated with his son, James Raymond, on a complex track titled “Curved Air.” The song features a flamenco guitar intro that Raymond actually composed on keyboards.

Crosby marvels, “I don’t know how he did it. I am completely flummoxed by it. When I heard it I said, ‘Who did you get to play the guitar?’ And he said, ‘Me.’ I said, ‘Oh, come on. You can’t possibly have played that. It’s inconceivable.’ But, yeah, he did. He’s that good.”

The 76-year-old Crosby says at this point in his storied career, he’s not interested in looking for a “hit.”

“[Raymond] and I aren’t trying to be pop guys, man,” he explains. “We’re not trying to have a hit. It’s just that I am at the end of my life. I’ve got a little time left. So I feel a strong pressure to do every bit of music I can and do it as well as I possibly can, knowing it will last longer than I will.”

You can listen to “Curved Air” now on SoundCloud. Sky Trails is due September 29.
