Bob Seger Reveals Tracklisting To His Upcoming Album ‘I Knew You When’

Music News

Fans can hardly believe their luck with the announcement they’re getting a brand new Bob Seger album a scant three-years after the last one. Seger, who’s been known to take his sweet time between records, just announced the full tracklisting to the set, titled I Knew You When, which features a vintage mid-’60s photo of Seger on the album cover. I Knew You When will be released on November 17th in two versions — a standard 10-track set, and a deluxe version with three extra songs, including his recently uploaded tribute to his musical soul brother and late-Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey, to whom I Knew You When Is dedicated. Seger has already released the first track from the album to radio — a cover of Lou Reed’s 1989 New York favorite, “Busload Of Faith.”

Bob Seger made news earlier this month when the final 18 dates of his “Runaway Train Tour” were indefinitely postponed upon receiving his doctor’s orders to attend to “an urgent medical issue concerning his vertebrae.” Rescheduled dates will be announced when available. Tickets sold for concerts that are being rescheduled will be honored at the new dates. So far, there’s been no word as to whether Seger has, or intends to, undergo surgery to help rectify the problem.

Bob Seger, who’s still regarded as one of the strongest songwriters of his generation, told us a while back that when it comes to writing, he’s always prided himself first and foremost as being a tunesmith: “I’m really going for melody this time. Y’know, really hard for melody. Of course, I kill myself on the words — you know how it is. But, I’m really trying to not use anything that isn’t really melodic y’know? And try to get back to good melodies.”

The tracklisting to Bob Seger’s I Knew You When is:

“Gracile”
