It has been 17 years since Bryan Adams and Mel C took the music scene by storm with, ‘When You’re Gone’. Feeling old? Bryan Adams is no spring chicken, but the Canadian rock legend is still banging out the tunes like it was 1998. He has just released his long-awaited 13th album, which was produced by Jeff Lynne of Electric Light Orchestra, ensuring it will be an unparalleled musical experience. The nine-track album, entitled Get Up!, contains some of the first original material from Adams in a long time. He has also been putting his filmmaking skills into practice, directing the video for the lead single, ‘Brand New Day’, starring the illustrious Helen Bonham Carter. Produced internationally, the demos were sent between Canada, Europe and L.A., with each contributor adding and editing before sending their changes 5,400 miles back to be checked again. Despite the amount of modern technology used to record it, Adams describes his new material as organic. Although his cover album was a hit, it’s great to hear his original music again. Taking to the stage of Palau Sant Jordi this January, the ‘Get Up!’ tour is definitely one to get along to.
