Rod Stewart has finished work on his eagerly anticipated new album, “Another Country,” to be released on October 23th 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 toexperiment with different sounds like reggae, ska and Celtic melodies.”
