Having passed his fiftieth anniversary as a recording artist, the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee continues to add new chapters to an incomparable career. With his twenty-ninth solo studio album, Another Country, Stewart picks up where his last album, 2013’s globally acclaimed ‘Time’, left off.
The album boasts 12 original tracks written by the singer himself. The title ‘Another Country’ is influenced by his musings over being in the armed forces, sent away from family and loved ones and so demonstrates a sentimental theme in the tracks.

The extraordinary life and career of music legend Rod Stewart,
in his own words for the first time.
With his soulful and singular voice, narrative songwriting, and
passionate live performances Rod Stewart has paved one of the most
iconic and successful music careers of all time. He was the
charismatic lead singer for the trailblazing rock and roll bands
The Jeff Beck Group and The Faces, and as a solo artist, the author
of such beloved songs as "Maggie May," "Tonight's the Night," "Hot
Legs," "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?," "Young Turks," "Forever Young," and
"You Wear It Well." Now after more than five decades in the
spotlight, he is finally ready to take a candid and romping look
back at his life both on and off the stage. From his humble British
roots to his hell-raising years on tour with his bandmates, not
forgetting his great loves (including three marriages and eight
children) and decades touring the world, Rod delivers a riveting
ride through one of rock's most remarkable lives.

'Ridiculously funny and astonishingly candid, Rod Stewart's memoir
is the rock autobiography of the decade' Daily Mail 'One of the
most entertaining, revealing, captivating books of the year'
Independent Rod Stewart was born the working-class son of a
Scottish plumber in North London. Despite some early close shaves
with a number of diverse career paths, ranging from gravedigging to
professional football, it was music that truly captured his heart -
and he never looked back. Rod started out in the early 1960s,
playing the clubs on London's R&B scene, before his
distinctively raspy voice caught the ear of the iconic front man
Long John Baldry, who approached him while busking one night on a
railway platform. Stints with pioneering acts like the Hoochie
Coochie Men, Steampacket, and the Jeff Beck Group soon followed,
paving the way into a raucous five years with the Faces, the rock
star's rock band, whose offstage antics with alcohol, wrecked hotel
rooms and groupies have become the stuff of legend. And during all
this, he found a spare moment to write 'Maggie May', among a few
others, and launch a solo career that has seen him sell an
estimated 200 million records, be inducted into the Hall of Fame
twice, and play the world's largest ever concert. Not bad, as he
says, for a guy with a frog in his throat. And then, there is his
not-so-private life: marriages, divorces and affairs with some of
the world's most beautiful women - Bond girls, movie stars and
supermodels - and a brush with cancer which very nearly saw it all
slip away. Rod's is an incredible life, and here, thrillingly and
for the first time, he tells the whole thing, leaving no knickers
under the bed. A rollicking rock 'n' roll adventure that is at
times deeply moving, this is the remarkable journey of a guy with
one hell of a voice - and one hell of a head of hair.
