Eric Krasno (Jay Sansone)

Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno decided to try something different on his new solo album, “Blood From a Stone”: lead vocals. You can check out his voice Sunday when he plays the Hamilton. We asked Krasno to tell us about the first three songs that popped into his head.

‘Early to the Party’
Andy Shauf
Krasno is “obsessed” with the Canadian singer’s spacey folk tune. “I love the vibe and the sound of his album — it’s so intimate, there’s so much space in it,” he says. “It just sounds really different and new to me.”

‘Leave a Little’
Eric Krasno
This is the first song Krasno has written for an upcoming concept album about the residents of a Brooklyn brownstone. It follows a woman in her early 20s having a rough night out. “There’s a lot of vocal psychedelia,” Krasno says. “This album is kind of my ‘Electric Ladyland.’ ”

‘Brown-Eyed Women’
Grateful Dead
Krasno is considering covering this country-rock sing-along from the Dead’s classic live album “Europe ’72” at his shows. “It takes you into an interesting world that I know nothing about,” he says. “Some of it, I don’t even know what it means.”

Hamilton, 600 14th St. NW; Sun., 7:30 p.m., $20-$25.
