Rod Stewart has a new CD

I grew up in the era of music videos. I can remember coming home from school and turning on the T.V. to watch these music videos. One of my favorite singers of all times (well heck call it a crush if you want) was Rod Stewart. . Just like I grew up the music of Rod Stewart has matured as well. Rod Stewart has spent four decades being a rock star, three being a parent and has a new album's worth of rollicking stories to tell. Time is his first album of new material in almost 20 years. His iconic hair style has never changed and neither has that voice that I fell in love with all those years ago. gs that still appeal to me.

Rod's new CD titled Time released May 7, 2013 offers just that a piece of time beyond the younger years that shows a bit more wisdom as Rod shares a bit of his life after the party years. Rod Stewart wrote and produced 11 of the 12 featured songs in the new CD.  Married again with young children as well as older grown children Rod shares songs that helps share pride and love for his life style and the commitment to his entire life. Inspiration for several of these songs come out of reflecting over his life and great memories while preparing for recent memoir.

Songs like "She Makes Me Happy" on the new CD seems to express Rod's happily giving up his former lifestyle. Like many of us Rod was one of the good old boys who liked to have a good time. The song "It's Over" Rod shares the pain of going through divorce. Something I am thankful that never happened in my personal life but have many friends who I have watched travel through the effects of divorce. Sharing lyrics of plans together... divorce.... lawyers letter and finaly its over. Rod's life does get better and you can  see this through songs such as "Beautiful Morning" where Rod shares a happier outlook on life.

To me Rod would not be Rod if he did not sing some songs of seduction. Perhaps as a teenage girl that is why I fell in love with his music. That and of course his voice. But now there are even more reasons because I have experienced life and Rod shares his own experiences through his music. Songs of children growing up perhaps grabs my heart the most.

Along with the release of Time, Stewart is set to embark on the European leg of his Live the Life tour on June 1st, while American dates with Steve Winwood will kick off October 17th.
