Bob Seger’s new studio album, Ride Out, arrives today, eight years after his previous platinum selling album Face The Promise.
Media appearances scheduled as part of this week’s launch include Jimmy Kimmel Live! (today) and The Ellen DeGeneres Show (Oct. 16).
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band have added cities to their Ride Out Tour, including Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Diego, Toledo, Columbus, Atlanta, Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale. Fan club members will have special access to purchase tickets in advance. For more details visit BobSeger.com.
The 17th studio album finds Seger lending 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.
“We decided to experiment and have some fun,” Seger recently told The Detroit News, adding, “You can’t go to Nashville as long as we have and not have some….”
Produced by Seger, Ride Out was recorded at Nashville’s historic Ocean Way Recording studios, with backing by 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).
Vince Gill lends harmony vocals to “Listen,” while background vocals throughout the album come courtesy of Laura Creamer, Shaun Murphy, and Barbara Payton.
Ride Out is also available in a special deluxe edition featuring three bonus tracks (see attached track listing). The standard album is also released on 180 gram vinyl.
