Bryan Adams storms back with his 11th studio album, entitled ‘11′ on March 17th, 2008 through Polydor Records, packed full of unmistakeable rockers and signature ballads.
The lead single “I Thought I’d Seen Everything” is a Bryan Adams classic in the making - a rocky, mid-tempo track that has already gone onto radio playlists on both side of the Atlantic.
The track is out now and available: Free download - “I Thought I’d Seen Everything” from hmv.com!
‘11′ was recorded largely in hotel rooms and backstage dressing rooms around the world during the past two years and feature the return of his long time collaborator Jim Vallance on three cuts. The Adams/Vallance partnership was responsible for many of Bryan’s classic hits including “Heaven”, “Summer of 69″ and “Run To You.”
From the uplifting “Broken Wings” to the sultry “Mysterious Ways” to the anthem-like “Something To Believe In” [that's boasts a chorus that should fill stadiums across the world], Bryan Adams’ 11th recording of original material is yet another milestone in a career that has spanned two and a half decades.
Whether it is the plaintive guitar solo in “Oxygen” or the reflective strains of “I Ain’t Losin’ The Fight,” the songs hold the listener and transport them, underscoring once again why Adams is in such demand as a songwriter and concert performer. ‘11′ is destined to bring new live favourites to the stage that would easily sit alongside Adam’s extensive catalogue of greatest hits.
In support of the release of the album, Adams will be putting on a unique ‘11 concerts, 11 cities’ tour, taking in 11 different countries in just 11 days. The intimate shows at some spectacular venues will see Bryan perform an acoustic set, on stage, with just his guitar and harmonica. The London show will be on 11th March, 2008 at St James Church in Piccadilly.
To coincide with the album and tour, an exhibition of Bryan Adams photographs will be held at London’s historic National Portrait Gallery, entitled ‘Modern Muses’.
