Bob Seger Reveals Details of New Album ‘I Knew You When’
With a little more than a month left to go before Bob Seger's new I Knew You When LP is scheduled to arrive in stores, the veteran rocker has revealed some of the details surrounding the set — including a complete track listing for the regular and deluxe editions.
Slated for a Nov. 17 release and available to pre-order now, I Knew You When marks Seger's 18th studio release — and arrives on the 49th year of his long-standing association with Capitol Records, making him the longest-tenured solo artist in the label's history. According to the press release announcing the milestone, Seger's discography now includes 13 platinum and seven multi-platinum sales awards, as well as a diamond certification for selling 10 million copies of his Greatest Hits LP. I Knew You When follows the 2014 release of Seger's most recent collection of new material, the No. 3 hit Ride Out.
As previously reported, I Knew You When collects a blend of covers and originals, as well as material that was earlier part of the trove of recordings Seger assembled for Ride Out. The sessions clearly found him in a reflective state of mind with respect to the spate of classic rockers we've lost over the last several years; the record's first single, "Busload of Faith," is a Lou Reed cover, and a tribute to Seger's longtime friend Glenn Frey closes out the deluxe edition of the LP — which is dedicated to the Eagles co-founder's memory. Listen to "Busload of Faith" above, and look over the complete track listing below.
