The Globe Sessions is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, released on September 21, 1998, in the United Kingdom and September 29, 1998, in the United States, then re-released in 1999. It was nominated for Album of the Year, Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Non-Classical Album at the 1999 Grammys, winning the latter two awards. The Globe Sessions reached No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart,[14] while peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart,[15] achieving US sales of two million as of January 2008.[16] The album was recorded at and named for the sessions recorded at Globe Recording Studio in New York owned by Robert FitzSimons and Tracey Loggia.

In 2019 it was announced that the 2008 fire that swept through Universal Studios Hollywood ultimately destroyed buildings belonging to Universal Music Group. It has since emerged that The Globe Sessions was one of hundreds of albums to have had their studio masters completely destroyed, making any future remasters or reissues doubtful. Many unreleased tracks and alternate takes on songs have also been lost.[17]

On earlier versions of the album the track "Crash and Burn" contains the hidden track "Subway Ride", running 11:19, while omitting "Sweet Child o' Mine".[18] Another version eliminates both "Subway Ride" and "Sweet Child o' Mine".[19] The version of "Sweet Child o' Mine" included is the 'Rick Rubin New Mix', originally featured on the Big Daddy soundtrack and later included on Hits & Rarities, and also called the 'Pop Version' on the CD single. It differs from the 'Rock Version' used in the single music video. The European version features "Resuscitation" (Crow, Trott) as the twelfth track; the Japanese version contains the bonus tracks "Carolina" and "Resuscitation" (Crow, Trott).
