Rod Stewart Tops Charts Again with 30th Studio Album!
New Album ‘Blood Red Roses’ in at No.1 2019 UK Tour Announced
Today, Rod Stewart’s 30th studio album ‘Blood Red Roses’ went straight to the top of the UK Official Album chart, making it his ninth UK Number 1!
Having taken the top spot over fellow pop legend Cher – with whom Rod once duetted – Rod is proud to have scored yet another No.1 album, 50 years after signing his first record contract.
Rod said of the news, “Thank you to the Great British Public for making Blood Red Roses #1. I’m grateful, I’m humbled, and feel like I just scored the winning goal in front of the home crowd.’
The singer has now had more UK No.1 albums than Bob Dylan, Elton John and Paul McCartney, with UK sales in excess of 11.5 million.
‘Blood Red Roses’ highlights Stewart’s acclaimed songwriting roots – blending the poignant observation, self-reflective introspection and playful swagger which established him as one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. Co-produced by Rod’s long-term collaborator Kevin Savigar, ‘Blood Red Roses’ moves easily from acoustic driven folk through Motown-tinged pop/R&B to unadulterated rock’n’roll and heart-melting ballads.
A deeply personal 13-track collection of originals and three covers, this album – his first in three years – follows international bestsellers ‘Another Country’ (2015) and ‘Time’ (2013) and is Rod at his very best.
