Rod Stewart - Another Country [LP] (new 2015 album)
Rod Stewart has finished work on his eagerly anticipated new album, Another Country, to be released October 2015 via Capitol Records. Another Country continues a prolific new chapter in Stewart's storied career that began with 2013's, Time, his landmark last album which reintroduced him as one of rock's most gifted storytellers.
"I've found that the only way to write songs is to be as personal and honest as possible," Rod explains. "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."
Collaborating closely with Kevin Savigar, who co-produced the album, Stewart embraced modern technology to record the album, "It seems like I've spent years of my life in a recording studio so being able to record this album at home, where most of the songs were written, felt so much more intimate and inspiring," waxed Stewart.
With his singular voice, narrative song-writing and passionate live performances, Rod Stewart has built one of the most successful and enduring music careers of all time. In a career spanning more than five decades, he has amassed sales of more than 200 million albums and singles worldwide. Throughout his career, he's garnered two inductions into the coveted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 18 Grammy nominations, and in 2007 was bestowed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by the Queen of England.
In 2013, he released Time, his first rock album in a dozen years, on Capitol Records. The album featured 11 original tracks and marked Rod's return to song-writing after nearly two decades. Time entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 1, setting a new British record for the longest gap between chart-topping albums by an artist.
