Watch Helena Bonham Carter and Miss Piggy in New Videos for Bryan Adams

In the '80s, Bryan Adams was the cool Canadian answer to the States' sultry Bruce Springsteen. With a blue collar, bad boy look down to his white t-shirt and leather jacket (forever etched in the heart of many a teenage girl from the cover of 1984's Reckless), his songs were not as gritty, but no less heartfelt; of its six singles, songs like "Run to You" and "Summer of '69" are permanently flagged modern classics, expertly produced (by the artist and Bob Clearmountain, who also worked with Springsteen) rock anthems that evoke the pop culture spirit of the time.
Adams, who has sometimes been confused with alt-country songwriter Ryan Adams (much to the latter's very public displeasure), will release his 13th studio album. Get Up, this Friday, October 30. First single "You Belong To Me" has a rollicking, rockabilly vibe and features the singer's still-fresh vocals belting out lyrics of passion and longing, sure to become another beloved entry in the artist's collection of love songs (adding to ballads like "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?," and "(Everything I Do), I Do it For You").
There's a unmistakable guitar tone to it, too, and if you're hearing echoes of The Traveling Wilburys or ELO, you're right: the album was produced by Jeff Lynne, who lends the cut real rock royalty gravitas. Check out the artist's video for the track; featuring just Adams, his guitar, and a free-spirited model, it's like a stripped-down, post-modern version of Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love." (And apparently, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are fans, too.) And none other than Helena Bonham Carter, aka HBC, stars in the video for lead single, "Brand New Day."
