(Do Ya Think I'm) Sexy Aussie rocker Rod Stewart is set to release THE BEST OF…THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK on February 1st, 2011, courtesy of J Records.
THE BEST OF…THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK is what it sounds like: it presents the highlights from five albums, recorded across eight years, which have become nothing less than a musical and cultural phenomenon. In addition, this new Songbook collection features one newly recorded, never-before-released track "You'll Never Know," produced by one of Rod's longtime collaborators Richard Perry, along with brand new mixes of "Someone To Watch Over Me" and "Bye Bye Blackbird."
Long celebrated for his expressive, distinctively raspy voice, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Living Legend Rod Stewart is widely regarded as having one of the most interpretive voices in music. THE BEST OF…THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK celebrates the unprecedented success of the 5 volume series, which is the biggest-selling ongoing series of new music recordings in history with over 18 million copies sold worldwide.
Having just wrapped a sold-out first ever concert run in Las Vegas in November and a sold-out European tour this past summer, Rod is planning a US tour in Spring 2011. More details are to be announced soon. In a career spanning five decades, with an estimated 250 million album and single sales, Rod Stewart is indisputably one of the most successful performers of all time.
