Rod Stewart celebrates 50 years as a solo artist with the release of his new album, You’re In My Heart: Rod Stewart With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, out today. In addition, the fourth official video from the album – for the song “You’re In My Heart” – was also released today on Stewart’s YouTube channel. So far, the three previously released official videos from the album – for “Maggie May,” “I Don’t Want To Talk About It” and “Sailing” – have been viewed more than 8.5 million times.
YOU’RE IN MY HEART lets fans hear Stewart’s biggest hits in a newly imagined way by pairing classic vocal tracks from his most popular songs with new arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The result is a timeless record that retains the power, soul and passion that helped make the legendary singer-songwriter one of the best-selling music artists of all time. He’s sold more than 250 million records worldwide during a stellar career that includes nine #1 albums and 26 Top 10 singles in the U.K.; plus 17 Top 10 albums and 16 Top 10 singles in the U.S.
YOU’RE IN MY HEART also includes a new version of the hit song “It Takes Two” featuring Robbie Williams and a brand-new song “Stop Loving Her Today” by Stewart. The album is available now as a single-CD and a double-CD that features the full orchestral arrangements. On February 7, just in time for Valentine’s Day 2020, the collection will be released as a 180-gram double-LP. A special pink-vinyl version will also be available.
The Album is packed with Stewart’s best-known songs, including versions of the Top 10 U.K. hits: “Tonight’s The Night (Gonna Be Alright) (a #1 smash in the U.S.), “The Killing of Georgie (Part 1 and II),” “You’re In My Heart (The Final Acclaim),” “I Was Only Joking,” “What Am I Gonna Do (I’m So In Love With You),” “Every Beat Of My Heart,” “Downtown Train,” “Rhythm Of My Heart” and a cover of Tom Waits’ “Tom Traubert’s Blues (Waltzing Matilda).”
Alongside Stewart’s major hits are fan favorites like: “Young Turks,” “Forever Young,” “If We Fall In Love Tonight,” a version of “Handbags And Gladrags” from his multi-platinum acoustic album, Unplugged…and Seated and “Stay With Me,” a Top 40 hit he recorded with the Faces in 1971.
The release of YOU’RE IN MY HEART coincides with the beginning of Stewart’s UK tour, which starts this weekend and continues with performances in November and December. In March, he returns to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for more shows.
