After leaving Geffen, Cowboy Junkies embarked on the 21st century as a newly independent band again, marking that with the release of the album "Open" in 2001.
"I'm So Open" was that album's rallying cry in many ways, as Michael Timmins and Alan Anton explain in this episode, marking a new start lyrically, sonically and in the way in which the band recorded. The album also featured telling guest performances from Jeff Bird of course, and Linford and Karin from Over The Rhine.
