The Standard Album will also be released on 180 gram vinyl.  All versions of the album will be released in stores October 14th.   The official music video for Bob Seger’s “Detroit Made”  premiered exclusively on RollingStone.com.

On his 17th studio album, Ride Out finds Seger holding true to his legendary sound, effortlessly marrying blues, country, and heartland soul into his trademark brand of Motor City rock ‘n’ roll. Seger offers a collection of new songs, including “All of The Roads” and “Hey Gypsy,” that are a powerful and personal addition to the GRAMMY® Award-winning rocker’s extraordinary catalogue, rich with character and passion, and the great American songwriter’s always compelling take on the world around him.

Seger also lends his signature style to several personal favorites written by other artists, including the driving first track, “Detroit Made” written by John Hiatt, “California Stars” featuring lyrics by Woody Guthrie and music by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and Jay Bennett, Steve Earle’s “The Devil’s Right Hand,” and “Adam and Eve” penned by acclaimed Australian singer/songwriters Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson.

“I’m real excited about the album,” says Seger adding, “I hope the fans like it.  We worked real hard on it and here it is!”

Produced by Seger, Ride Out was recorded at Nashville’s historic Ocean Way Recording studios, with backing from a stunning array of Music City’s greatest musicians: Academy of Country Music Guitar Player of the Year 2014 Rob McNelley (who also serves as lead guitarist in Seger’s current live band), bassist Glenn Worf (Mark Knopfler, Tammy Wynette), keyboardist and longtime live guitarist Jim “Moose” Brown (Brad Paisley, Darryl Worley), and drummer Chad Cromwell (Neil Young, Joe Walsh).

Bob Seger Returns With New Studio Album Ride Out’ On October 14th

The Legendary Bob Seger

The Legendary Bob Seger

Bob Seger has emerged from the studio equipped with a new album, Ride Out, set to be released October 14 on Capitol Records. The first single, “Detroit Made,” pays homage to America’s love affair with the automobile. The uptempo song hit radio airwaves this past weekend serving as the perfect backdrop to the 20th annual Woodward Dream Cruise, the world’s largest one day celebration of classic car culture.

“I feel really good about this record,” says Seger.  “This album touches on how I think a lot of us feel about finding our place in a more complicated world – from how we appreciate things as simple and pure as love, to navigating through the corruption and violence that permeates the news.  It sums up a lot of feelings I have about a variety of subjects.”

Produced by Seger, the new collection stays true to his legendary sound as he effortlessly marries rock, blues and country, yielding an album with all the hallmarks of the rocker’s deep catalog of hits. Seger began teasing tracks from the album during his 2013 tour, including “Detroit Made,” “All of The Roads” and “California Stars.”

Ride Out is Seger’s first studio album since his 2006 platinum-certified Face The Promise and follows his 2011 platinum-certified release, Ultimate Hits: Rock and Roll Never Forgets.

Bob Seger has sold more than 51 million albums and has racked up 13 platinum and 7 multi-platinum RIAA-certified album sales awards in the U.S. alone. He is both a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, and his Greatest HitsAgainst The Wind,Night MovesStranger In TownNine Tonight, and Live Bullet have been RIAA-certified for more than five million U.S. album sales each. The 1994 Greatest Hits collection was the #1 best-selling catalog album in the U.S. during the past decade (2001-2009), as reported by Billboard/SoundScan. With his many successes, Seger’s music is permanently etched in the American musical landscape.

Kid Rock And Bob Seger Tours To Collide For Two Special Shows In March

Kid Rock And Bob Seger Tours To Collide For Two Special Shows In March

Kid Rock

Kid Rock

Bob Seger and Kid Rock are good friends who have talked about doing shows together for years. Finally, this vision has bkid-rock-2013-longecome a reality. Both artists have been preparing for Spring tours. The trick was getting the tour schedules, which are crisscrossing the country, to match up.

The result will be two special concerts featuring Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band and Kid Rock & The Twisted Brown Trucker Band: the first in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN on March 15, the second in Fargo, ND on March 16.

Seger and Kid Rock go back a long way. The two became friends shortly after they met in 2000. Rock inducted Seger into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and appeared on Seger’s 2006 Face The Promise album for a duet of Vince Gill’s “Real Mean Bottle”. Seger appeared on Kid Rock’s Born Free album playing piano on his duet with Sheryl Crow, “Collide”. Seger and his Silver Bullet Band have often rehearsed at Rock’s rehearsal warehouse. Both share an interest in classic cars and both have stayed true to their Michigan roots.

Seger has written and recorded many timeless classics through his career including Turn The Page, Night Moves, Mainstreet, Against The Wind, Hollywood Nights, Like A Rock, Rock And Roll Never Forgets, We’ve Got Tonite, Old Time Rock And Roll, Her Strut, You’ll Accomp’ny Me, Travelin Man/Beautiful Loser, and Katmandu.

Kid Rock, an early innovator, masterfully clashing hip hop, rock and country musical styles, has written and recorded many classics of his own, including “Bawitdaba”, “Cowboy”, “Only God Knows Why”, “Picture” (duet with Sheryl Crow), “All Summer Long”, “So Hott”, “Born Free” “Forever”, “American Bad Ass” and soon to be’s from his new album “Rebel Soul”.

Tickets go on sale January 26th at 10:00 a.m. Both Bob Seger and Kid Rock fan club members will have early access to tickets. Visit www.bobseger.com and www.kidrock.com for more info.

Ladies and Gentleman… The Beatles Finally Come To iTunes!

Ladies and Gentleman… The Beatles Finally Come To iTunes!

The Beatles

Apple announced a deal with representatives of the Beatles and the group’s record label, EMI Group, to put the entire catalog of Beatles music in the iTunes Store.

For years, The Fab Four have been the most notable holdout from selling their collective digital music in Apple’s popular iTunes store even though solo recordings by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison are already available.

“We’re really excited to bring the Beatles’ music to iTunes,” band member Sir Paul McCartney said in a statement. “It’s fantastic to see the songs we originally released on vinyl receive as much love in the digital world as they did the first time around.”

The deal covers the band’s 13 original studio albums and special box sets. Individual songs cost $1.29, most albums are priced at $12.99 and double albums, such as “Past Masters,” cost $19.99. The popular “White Album” also costs $19.99.

The Beatles’ inclusion in the iTunes store will also put additional pressure on AC/DC, Bob Seger and Kid Rock, all of whom have continued to withhold their music from the online store.

The Beatles-iTunes agreement will also strengthen the iTunes catalog, which has come to symbolize the importance of music to Apple’s corporate identity as it has grown from a niche computer maker. The iPod helped bring digital music to the mainstream, simplifying music purchases while spurring an ecosystem of speakers and other accessories. As the iPod grew to dominate the digital music player market, iTunes became the largest music retailer in the U.S. Since it opened 2003, more than 10 billion songs have been sold on iTunes worldwide.
