Rod Stewart hits and faves get orchestrated

Sir Rod Stewart (knighted in 2016) celebrates 50 years as a solo artist this year. The legendary singer-songwriter is one of the best-selling music artists of all time. 

On Nov. 22, Rhino Records will release a new album that lets fans hear Stewart’s biggest hits in a newly imagined way.

YOU’RE IN MY HEART: ROD STEWART WITH THE ROYAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA pairs classic vocal tracks from his most popular songs with new arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The album also features a new version of the hit song “It Takes Two” featuring Robbie Williams and a brand-new song “Stop Loving Her Today” by Rod Stewart.

The album formats: 1CD and 2CD with full orchestral arrangements. The music will also be available to download digitally and via streaming services.

Produced by Trevor Horn, YOU’RE IN MY HEART includes new orchestral versions of Stewart’s #1 U.K. hits: “Sailing,” “I Don’t Want To Talk About It” and “The First Cut Is The Deepest.” The collection also features versions of “Maggie May” and “Reason To Believe” – songs that topped the charts in both the U.K. and the U.S. in 1971.

YOU’RE IN MY HEART has Stewart’s best-known songs, including versions of the Top 10 U.K. hits: “Tonight’s The Night (Gonna Be Alright) (a #1 smash in the U.S.), “The Killing of Georgie (Part 1 and II),” “You’re In My Heart (The Final Acclaim),” “I Was Only Joking,” “What Am I Gonna Do (I’m So In Love With You),” “Every Beat Of My Heart,” “Downtown Train,” “Rhythm Of My Heart” and a cover of Tom Waits’ “Tom Traubert’s Blues (Waltzing Matilda).”

Alongside Stewart’s major hits are fan favorites like: “Young Turks,” “Forever Young,” “If We Fall In Love Tonight,” a version of “Handbags And Gladrags” from his multi-platinum acoustic album, Unplugged…and Seated and “Stay With Me,” a Top 40 hit he recorded with the Faces in 1971.

After a stadium tour this summer, the release of YOU'RE IN MY HEART coincides with the continuation of Stewart's biggest UK tour ever with live performances in November and December. In addition, he returns to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and a show this September at The Hollywood Bowl with a landmark reunion set with his former bandmate Jeff Beck.
