Rod Stewart scores 23rd Top 10 hit

“Didn’t I” appears on Blood Red Roses coming Sept 28th

Rod Stewart has scored his 23rd Top 10 hit on the AC chart with his latest single “Didn’t I.” The song soared into the Top 10 just five weeks into its release, quickly becoming a radio favorite and standout live performance on Stewart’s sold-out summer tour. “Didn’t I” is about the damage drugs can do from a parent’s’ point of view.

The song is from his upcoming 30th studio album Blood Red Roses, which is due out September 28th via Republic Records on standard and Deluxe CD. The album is a deeply personal collection of originals and three covers. This new album, his first in three years, follows international bestsellers Another Country (2015) and Time (2013) and will be released nearly 50 years to the date of when he signed his very first solo recording contract.

Co-produced by Stewart’s long-term collaborator Kevin Savigar, Blood Red Roses moves easily from acoustic driven folk through Motown-tinged pop/R&B to unadulterated rock’n’roll and heart-melting ballads.

Fans can preview another song from the highly anticipated album with the release of “Look In Her Eyes.” The song is available now for purchase and as an instant grat with album pre-orders.
