Bryan Adams has revealed details of his new album, which will be his first collection of original material since 2008.
Get Up, due October 16, was produced by Jeff Lynne of ELO, and features nine new songs, as well as four acoustic versions. A Bryan-directed video for the album’s lead track, “Brand New Day,” is on the way featuring actress Helena Bonham Carter.
In a statement about the album, Bryan says, “It came together quite organically…There is a carefree feeling about this album and in many ways it is the album I wish I’d been able to make 25 years ago.”
Describing the recording process, Jeff Lynne says, “Bryan would send me a demo across the internet, then I would play most of the instruments to make a finished backing track and send it back to him in England. There he would put the lead vocal on to the song and send it back to me in California, 5,400 miles apart! And it’s turned out to be a rockin’ album!”
Bryan is continuing his current tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of his album Reckless. September 13, he’ll co-headline a festival in London’s Hyde Park with Rod Stewart.
