Bob Seger to release first album in eight years
Bob Seger is to release a new album later this year.
According to a report on Rolling Stone, Seger will release Ride Out on October 14.
It is his first studio album since Face The Promise in 2006.
“I feel really good about this record,” Seger said in a statement quoted on Rolling Stone. “This album touches on how I think a lot of us feel about finding our place in a more complicated world – from how we appreciate things as simple and pure as love, to navigating through the corruption and violence that permeates the news. It sums up a lot of feelings I have about a variety of subjects.”
The story also says the album will include a cover of Wilco and Billy Bragg's "California Stars" from Mermaid Avenue, based on lyrics by Woody Guthrie.
You can watch Seger cover "California Stars" below from the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio on February 27, 2013.
