Canadian singer/songwriter Bryan Adams will announce on Monday the release of his brand-new album, and will be his first of new material since 2008’s Eleven, which hit No. 80 on the U.S. charts, but soared to No. 1 in Canada, his home country.  Adams said of his new album, it’s “one of the best records I’ve ever made, for sure.”

The Canadians new album was produced by legendary Electric Light Orchestra frontman Jeff Lynne, who’s pedigree also includes the supergroup The Traveling Wilburys with Tom Petty, George Harrison, Bob Dylan and the late Roy Orbison, and has production credits on hit solo albums for Petty and Harrison, as well as Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh and Ringo Starr.

Last year Adams was quoted as saying “Believe me, I’m so excited about this.  I can’t wait for it to come out It’s up, it’s rocking, it sounds really retro…and I don’t care!”

Adams hasn’t been completely dormant, last year he released Tracks of My Years, an album of cover songs.

Bryan AdamsFor fans looking for a reason as to why he hasn’t put out a album of originals for so long, look no further than his touring schedule, he basically tours all the time. That, plus his family, and his passion as a photographer makes for not a lot of downtime.

In the end Adams puts it down to quality not quantity, saying,

“It’s a lot of work to put a record together and it’s a lot of work to promote it, so, I’d rather just really focus — even if I did one album this whole decade, that’s OK with me.  I’m just really sort of happy making it as good as it can be.”

Referring to himself and his songwriting partner Jim Vallance, Adams said, “We wanna make something that’s gonna last and that’s gonna have legs and something that’s gonna be great to play live.”
