Rod Stewart today announces a brand new studio album, ‘Another Country,’ to be released on October 23 on Decca. It’s the follow-up to his hugely successful 2013 release ‘Time’ and sees him co-producing with Kevin Savigar, and co-writing most of the material. Here you can watch the just-released video for the Celtic-flavoured lead single, ‘Love Is,’ featuring Rod and his band on the roof of the famous Capitol Records building in Hollywood.
“I’ve found that the only way to write songs is to be as personal and honest as possible,” says Stewart. “And when my last album was so well-received it gave me the confidence to keep on writing, and to examine and write about different things. It also gave me the freedom to experiment with different sounds like reggae, ska and Celtic melodies.”
Pre-orders of the standard 12-song, or 15-song deluxe edition, of the album from today will receive an instant download of ‘Love Is.’ Those pre-ordering the deluxe version will also get an instant download of Stewart’s new version of ‘In A Broken Dream,’ for which he recorded the lead vocal for Python Lee Jackson’s 1968 version that became a hit in 1972, after his career exploded.
“It seems like I’ve spent years of my life in a recording studio,” adds Stewart, “so being able to record this album at home, where most of the songs were written, felt so much more intimate and inspiring.”
