Bob Seger to Release New Album “RIDE OUT” October 14th
STAY TUNED! BIG Announcement, New Bob Seger ALBUM “RIDE OUT” to hit the streets on OCTOBER 14th! Grab a pre-order of Ride Out [Deluxe Edition] on Amazon now! Are you ready for the Ride? Seger’s last album was the 13-song Face the Promise in 2006. Seger, 69, was born in Lincoln Park, Mich. and spent much of his childhood in the Ann Arbor area. He currently resides in Metro Detroit.
At this point, Bob Seger feels like the living father of old-school rock ‘n’ roll. The Michigan native has been playing live music and turning them into classics, like Night Moves for decades, and he just released a new single called Detroit Made. It sounds like a future staple of just about every classic car show within the next few years, and the video is dedicated to the Motor City, past and future. Detroit Made is all about cruising in the city in a classic Buick Electra 225, perhaps better known as a “deuce and a quarter.” It’s straight-down-the-middle rock and could just as easily be from a decades-old Seger album as something new. John Hiatt, an Indianapolis native, originally wrote “Detroit Made”.The video for the new single, Detroit Made, mixes shots of American classics cruising along Woodward Avenue with a contemporary look at the city. Sure, there are the well-known dilapidated buildings falling into rubble, but the people there aren’t just letting the city die. Other parts show the attempts to clean things up and rebuild. Check out the video if you need a few minutes of old school rockin’ in your life.
Bob Seger kicked around the Detroit area, releasing a handful albums that sold poorly, for almost a decade. Then after ten years of touring and becoming one of the best live acts in the world, he found himself being one of the best singer songwriters of his time. His rough, R&B-influenced garage rock sound of the ‘60s eventually gave way to his slick, now classic, sound with his Silver Bullet Band in the mid ‘70s. In 1976, ‘Night Moves,’ Seger found the formula for much of the next decade, releasing hit albums like 1978’s ‘Stranger in Town’ and 1980’s ‘Against the Wind,’ his only No. 1. He’s released new music and toured sporadically since the ‘90s, playing a mix of heartland rock sprinkled with bits of twang, pop and soul.
It is currently available for pre-order via iTunes for $10.99 and has 13 songs.
