Rod Stewart Tops The Mid-Weeks! New Album ‘Blood Red Roses’ Goes Straight In At No.1
Announces 2019 UK Tour
Rod Stewart’s 30th studio album ‘Blood Red Roses’, out now on Decca Records, went straight to the top of the UK Official Album mid-week chart today and it’s on course to become his ninth UK Number 1!
‘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.
‘Blood Red Roses’, a deeply personal 13-track collection of originals and three covers, is quite simply peak Rod Stewart. The album’s first single, ‘Didn’t I’, is about the damage drugs can do from a parent’s point of view. This new album, his first in three years, follows international bestsellers ‘Another Country’ (2015) and ‘Time’ (2013) and will be released nearly 50 years to the date from when he signed his very first solo recording contract.
