CD Review: Time by Rod StewartMay 7, 2013
By participating in a One2OneNetwork campaign, I received the CD "Time" for this review. All opinions are mine.
Rod Stewart started his music career over forty years ago now and today, May 7th marks his first album release of new material in almost 20 years. "Time" marks Stewart's long-awaited return to his songwriting roots and features 12 tracks, 11 of which he wrote and produced himself.
The album was born from a burst of inspiration that came while Rod was reviewing his life for his recent memoir. He rediscovered his voice as a songwriter and rekindled his gift for writing.
"Suddenly ideas for lyrics were piling up in my head," he says. "Next thing I knew, I had a song called 'It's Over' about divorce and separation. And now I was getting up in the middle of the night and scrambling for a pen to write things down, which has never happened to me. I finished seven or eight songs very quickly and I still wasn't done, and it became apparent that I would eventually have a whole album of material to record."
Along with the release of Time, Stewart is set to embark on the European leg of his Live the Life tour on June 1st, while American dates with Steve Winwood will kick off October 17th.
Don't miss Rod's TV appearances starting with The Voice tomorrow, May 8; Good Morning America on May 9; and Live With Kelly & Michael on May 11.
The album has a nice mix of slow ballads and upbeat songs, my two favorites are his current single releases: "She Makes Me Happy" and "Finest Woman". Sample a song from TIME on iTunes*. Available for $9.99 on Amazon.com
