Some big news for Bob Seger fans. “Ride Out,” the new album from the singer/songwriter, will be released on October 14. This marks his first LP in eight years and may be his last, according to Billboard. Just last week Seger unveiled his new single “Detroit Made,” a song originally written and recorded by John Hiatt. Though the full tracklist has yet to be released, confirmed tracks include “Wonderland,” “Gates of Eden,” and “Ride Out.” Talking about the upcoming album in a press statement, Seger says “I feel really good about this record. 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.”
Speaking with Billboard last year, Seger hinted this may be his final album: “I don't know how much more there is to prove. I wouldn't mind putting out one more record, one last swan song. That's all I'm concerned with right now is trying to make that as good as it can be, and then we'll look at everything else and play it by ear.” This new release will be the follow up to 2006's “Face the Promise.” Seger is an accomplished artist who has sold over 51 million albums since the beginning of his career. He has also been inducted into both the Rock and Roll ad Songwriters halls of fame.
