"On The Ropes" is the new album by italian folk-rock duo The Crowsroads, formed by brothers Matteo (guitar, vocals) and Andrea Corvaglia (harmonica, vocals). It follows "Some Sky Inside My Pocket" (2012) – an EP of original songs – and "Reels" (2016) – an album mixing original songs and covers – , being their first full-length album containing only self-written songs. It has twelve tracks; eleven of them are totally new, one ("Every Time That You Walk Out The Door") is the translation of a song from the 70s, "Ogni volta che tu te ne vai" (F.lli La Bionda). Produced by Antonio Giovanni Lancini and Paolo Salvarani, arranged by Antonio Giovanni Lancini, recorded by Paolo Costola at the MacWave Studios in Brescia, mixed and mastered by Lorenzo Cazzaniga at the Alari Park Studios in Cernusco sul Naviglio, the album features contributions by Michele "Poncio" Belleri, Michele Bonivento, Andrea Gipponi, Antonio Giovanni Lancini, Stefania Martin e Phil Mer and three exclusive collaborations with Sarah Jane Morris ("Seaweed"), Frankie Chavez ("Monologue") and Jono Manson ("The Gardener's Daughter").
