Rabat, on (date) March 2017 : Rod Stewart is one of the best selling artists in the history of recorded music, with over 200 million records sold worldwide. His signature voice, style and haircut have transcended all genres of popular music, from rock & roll, new wave and even tackling the Great American Song Book; making him one of the few stars to enjoy continued success over five decades. He has garnered two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and won countless awards including a Grammy and the ASCAP Founders Award for songwriting.
Having recently passed his fiftieth anniversary as a recording artist, he continues to add new chapters to an incomparable career. With his twenty ninth solo studio album, Another Country, Stewart picks up where his last album. 2013’s globally acclaimed Time, left off.
Holding the album « Another country » together is that voice—a voice that led the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, to call Stewart “the best white soul singer,” a voice about which Elton John once said, “Bar none, Rod’s the best singer I’ve heard in rock ‘n’ roll.” That distinctively raspy, impressively expressive, and surprisingly versatile voice, has been heard around the world; from his early days with the Jeff Beck group, through the glory years bouncing between the glorious Faces and a triumphant solo career, right up to the five volumes of the Great American Songbook, the official best-selling series of new recordings in pop history. Rod Stewart is sure to enjoy many more years of success in the studio and on the stage alike.
