Rod Stewart continues to build anticipation ahead of the release of his forthcoming studio album Blood Red Roses, which drops Sept. 28 via Republic/UMG. The legendary British rocker has premiered an official music video for his latest single “Didn't I.”
The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer debuted the video on Aug. 24 via MusicVaultz. “Didn't I” features Sir Rod's longtime backing singer Bridget Cady and was released as the album's lead single back on July 19.
The video opens with the shot of a young ballerina, dancing with wild abandon on an apartment rooftop. As the retro-60s intro to Stewart's cautionary tale about drug use gradually builds in layers, the clips segue to the scene of the dressing room. The dancer prepares her make-up in preparation to meet her drug-addicted boyfriend at a rehearsal studio as the ex-Faces star sings, “There are times to remember/And times I wish to forget.”
Co-produced by Stewart and longtime collaborator Kevin Savigar, Blood Red Roses is the Grammy winner's follow up to 2015's Another Country. The album is available for preorder here in a 13-track standard edition and 16-track deluxe edition in digital, CD, vinyl and streaming formats. Fans will receive a download of “Didn't I” as an instant grat track with each order. Check out the music video for “Didn't I” above.
Rod the Mod launched his U.S. summer tour with Cyndi Lauper on July 24 in Hollywood, Florida. The tour continues on Aug. 24 in Phoenix at Talking Stick Resort Arena. Fans in Sin City can also looking forward catching the busy rocker this winter as he continues his hugely successful “Rod Stewart: The Hits” residency, which will take place between Nov. 21 – Dec. 2 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum At Caesars.
