Rod Stewart Announces New Album Details

Rod Stewart will release his first album of new material in three years on Nov. 12, he announced today.

The album–The Tears of Hercules– features nine new original songs and three covers, including renditions of Johnny Cash‘s “These Are My People” and Soul Brothers Six‘s “Some Kind of Wonderful.”
