Rod Stewart With Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: Listen

Share This:

Rod Stewart has released a new album recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The album pairs classic vocal tracks from his most popular songs with new arrangements. The original September 18 announcement notes that the singer, one of the best-selling music artists of all time, celebrates 50 years as a solo artist this year. You’re in My Heart: Rod Stewart With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which arrived November 22 from Rhino, includes new orchestral versions of such classic rock hits as “Maggie May,” “Stay With Me,” “Tonight’s The Night (Gonna Be Alright),” and “The First Cut is the Deepest.” (See the complete track listing below.)

The announcement followed Stewart‘s revelation that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2016. The singer-songwriter, now 74, has enjoyed sales of more than 250 million records worldwide including nine #1 albums and 26 Top 10 singles in the U.K. In the U.S., he has earned 17 Top 10 albums and 16 Top 10 singles.

You’re in My Heart: Rod Stewart With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra also features a new version of the hit song “It Takes Two” featuring Robbie Williams and a brand-new song “Stop Loving Her Today.” The album will be released November 22 as a single CD and as a 2-CD deluxe edition that features the full orchestral arrangements.
