When you've sold over 100-million records, it is pretty hard to stop making records. As is the case for timeless music legend Rod Stewart, who hasn't written new material for an album in over a decade. The British superstar prepared fans for "Time", his latest mark on his seemingly endless discography, by previewing the album to a select group of journalists in New York City last week.
Stewart is crediting long-time collaborator Jim Cregan for getting the pen back to the pad for his 29th studio album.
“About a year ago, I was sitting at my house in England, and [Cregan] came around and said, ‘Come on, let’s try to write a song,’” Stewart said in October 2012. “And I said, ‘No, I can’t be bothered. Those days are over.’ But we sat down, I started humming a melody and he took it away and sent it back and said, ‘Listen, this is pretty good,’ so I wrote some words for it and ever since then it’s just been flowing like a river.”
"Time" does not have an official track listing or artwork just yet, but fans will be able to rock with Rod, yet again, on May 7th, 2013 when the album releases everywhere.
