Rod Stewart's New Album 'Time' Set For May 7th Release
Rod Stewart's new album, Time, will be released on May 7th. The set -- which was originally announced as Love The Life You Live -- features all the songs written or co-written and produced by Rod. The album's lead single, "She Makes Me Happy," has just been released to radio. A deluxe iTunes version of the album features three bonus tracks.
 
Rod spoke about how writing his recent memoir led to a return to songwriting: "Something about that process of reviewing my life for the book reconnected me and that was it: I was away. Suddenly ideas for lyrics were piling up in my head. Next thing I knew, I had a song called 'It's Over' about divorce and separation. And now I was getting up in the middle of the night and scrambling for a pen to write things down, which has never happened to me. I finished seven or eight songs very quickly and I still wasn't done and it became apparent that I would eventually have a whole album of material to record, which had never happened before."
 
Rod Stewart explained to us how the outpouring of new material came to happen: "About a year ago I was sitting out, sitting in my house in England and my good friend Jim Cregan came around and said, 'C'mon, let's try and write a song' -- I said, 'No, I can't be bothered, those days are over.' So, we sat down, I started humming a melody and he took it away and sent it back and he said, 'Listen, this is pretty good.' So, I wrote some words to it. And ever since then, it's been, like, flowing like a river. Y'know, the songs just keep going."
