Rod Stewart Gives A Reason To Believe With New Album And Tour

In support of the release of his 31st studio album entitled The Tears of Hercules Sir Rod Stewart is going out on tour - though fans will have to wait until December 2022.

Stewart is one of the best-selling artists in the history of recorded music, with an estimated 250 million records and singles sold worldwide. His performance will include fan favourites from across his impressive career, as well as, being the first to hear live performances of tracks from the new album which is released on 12th November.

The album is Stewart’s fourth new album of original songs since 2013 when he reconnected with his songwriting muse to record Time, the chart-topping album which entered the Top 10 in the US and ten countries worldwide, including #1 in the UK, where it’s been certified platinum double-platinum.

For his latest, Stewart wrote nine of the album’s 12 songs, including the first single, One More Time. The album is close to Stewart’s heart, especially the song Touchline, which he dedicated to his father, who taught him and his brothers to love football, a tradition Sir Rod has passed down to his sons. In the album’s sleeve note, Stewart says he’s proud of the album. “I’ve never said this before about any previous efforts, but I believe this is by far my best album in many a year,” he writes.
