Rod Stewart will return with new music this September. The singer-songwriter has announced his 30th studio album Blood Red Roses will arrive on September 28.
The album will contain 13 tracks on the standard edition and 16 on the deluxe. Alongside the album announcement, Stewart has also released the project’s lead single “Didn’t I.”
In a press release, Stewart describes the album as “deeply personal”, with “Didn’t I” touching on the damage of drugs from a parent’s perspective.
“It’s funny that a rock star should be singing a song like that,” said Stewart in a press release. “It isn’t an anti-drug song, although you could take it that way, but it’s certainly a “beware” song.”
“I always think I make albums for a few friends and this record has that intimacy,” said Stewart. “Sincerity and honesty go a long way in life and the same is true in song-writing.”
Blood Red Roses was co-produced by Kevin Savigar and will infuse several genres, including acoustic folk, Motown-tinged pop/R&B, rock and roll, and ballads. It’s Stewart’s first album since 2015’s Another Country.
