Bob Seger is prepping a new album, his first in eight years.
Billboard reports that the rocker will release Ride Out, his 17th album, on Oct. 14.
It could very well be his final album; last year, he told Billboard he “wouldn’t mind putting out one more record, one last swan song” with his 70th birthday looming on May 6, 2015.
Ride Out was self-produced at studios in Nashville and Detroit. It includes a rendition of John Hiatt’s “Detroit Made,” released last week, plus a cover of “California Stars” by Wilco, Billy Bragg and Woody Guthrie. An original, “All of the Roads,” is also expected to be included on the tracklist, which has not been revealed.
