CD! Bryan Adams - Tracks Of My Years
Multi-platinum recording-artist Bryan Adams has announced the release of his new covers album, “Tracks Of My Years”, a diverse collection of time honoured classics from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. The eleven-track album will be released October 3rd through Polydor Records and features a wide range of influential musical styles, from Chuck Berry's "Rock & Roll Music", Ray Charles' "I Can't Stop Loving You" to The Beatles' "Any Time At All". The album will also include a brand new track entitled, “She Knows Me” co-written with Adams’ long-term writing partner Jim Vallance. The Adams/Vallance partnership was responsible for many of Bryan’s classic hits including “Heaven”, “Summer of ‘69” and “Run To You”. "Making the selection of the songs for the album took a long time" noted Bryan. "We recorded all kinds of songs until the songs sort of presented themselves, or sounded different enough from the originals. We did about 3 months of recording, spread out over the course of 2 years. Radio was king when I was a teenager," Adams reflected, "you'd hear McCartney's "Admiral Halsey" straight into "Kiss and Say Goodbye" by the Manhattans. Radio didn't discriminate back then".
