Bob Seger will treat fans to a brand new studio album prior to the holiday season. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has revealed that he will drop his 18th studio release in November.
Billboard reports on Sept. 10 the “Old Time Rock and Roll” hitmaker unveiled the big news during a hometown stop on his current Runaway Train Tour of North America, which took place Sept. 9 in Detroit at DTE Energy Music Theatre. The release will be Seger's first since his highly successful 2014 effort Ride Out, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and topped Billboard's US Top Rock Albums chart.
The Motor City rocker also told fans that the first single will hit shelves later in September. Seger has been working on the album mostly in Nashville since late 2015 and has described the album as a collection of re-worked unreleased songs with the working title “I Knew You When.”
Official details are expected within the new couple of weeks. Fans can watch fan-shot footage of Seger performing "Rolling Me Away" from the Detroit show above.
The multi-platinum seller and his longtime backing group The Silver Bullet Band kicked off their summer U.S. headline tour on Aug. 24 in Toledo, Ohio. The Runaway Tour was recently extended into November with Seger adding a half dozen more shows, beginning Nov. 2 in Oakland, Calif., at Oracle Area with major city stops in Seattle and Portland, Ore., before wrapping up Nov. 17 in Rosemont, Ill., at Allstate Arena.
Fans can catch Seger and company at their next U.S. stop on Sept. 12 in Rochester, New York, at Blue Cross Arena. Heart co-founder Nancy Wilson and newly formed supergroup Roadcase Royale, which features ex-Prince bandmembers, will be special guests on the majority of shows with roots rockers Larkin Poe supporting on the final two shows of the tour.
