Rod Stewart will release his 30th studio album, Blood Red Roses on September 28 and the album's first single, Didn't I is about the damage drugs can do from a parent's' point of view.

Blood Red Roses will be released as standard as a 13-track album with a 16-track deluxe from digital retailers. 

The new album is the singer's first in three years, following Another Country (2015) and Time (2013). The album will be released almost 50 years since the young Rod signed his first solo recording contract.

‘I always think I make albums for a few friends and this record has that intimacy,’ the veteran rocker declares. ‘Sincerity and honesty go a long way in life and the same is true in song-writing.’

Co-produced by Rod’s long-term collaborator Kevin Savigar, Blood Red Roses features acoustic driven folk through Motown-tinged pop/R&B to `unadulterated rock’n’roll and heart-melting ballads.'

Throughout a glittering career, Rod has had two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2016 he was knighted by Britain’s Prince William at Buckingham Palace for his services to music and charity. His music has sold on more than 200 million albums and singles.

Blood Red Roses Track-listing is as follows: Look In Her Eyes, Hole In My Heart, Farewell, Didn’t I, Blood Red Roses, Grace, Give Me Love, Rest Of My Life, Rollin’ & Tumblin’, Julia, Honey Gold, Vegas Shuffle, Cold Old London, Who Designed The Snowflake, It Was A Very Good Year and I Don’t Want To Get Married, the latter three tracks being Deluxe bonus tracks.
