Share This:

Rod Stewart announced on July 19 the release of his 30th studio album, Blood Red Roses, and the first single, “Didn’t I.” The title, via Republic Records, arrives Sept. 28. On September 6, a second song, “Look in Her Eyes,” was released. Listen to both songs below.

From the announcement, Stewart said: “I always think I make albums for a few friends and this record has that intimacy, I hope. Sincerity and honesty go a long way in life and the same is true in songwriting.”

The collection features newly written Stewart originals, plus three new covers.

Stewart is a 2x inductee in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, and winner of numerous awards including a Grammy and ASCAP songwriting awards. On Oct. 11, 2016, he was knighted at a ceremony at London’s Buckingham Palace, which he described as “deeply mind blowing.” He thanked Her Majesty and promised it to “wear it well.”

From the announcement: “The new songs fearlessly address life’s thornier issues from first infatuation to our final words to a friend, and all the agonies and ecstasies along the way.”
