The Doors Robby Krieger Talks New Album, Miles Davis Influence

Did you make Singularity with a specific vision for the album in mind?

I started with the first piece, “Russian Caravan.” I was working on some songs with my friend Arthur Barrow about 10 years ago. We decided to write a tribute to Miles Davis, something like [1960’s] “Sketches of Spain.” I told Arthur, “I’ll be Miles Davis and you be Gil Evans,” the arranger who worked with Miles on a few classic albums like Birth of the Cool. The song started with the acoustic flamenco stuff and then shifted into the full electric band.
