New Music Releases – May 2013
Our May 2013 New Music Releases rundown finds a lot of legends returning to the shelves.
First off, we’re going to see a new album from CCR front man John Fogerty, who’s joined by an all-star roster that includes Foo Fighters, Kid Rock and Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban and Bob Seger to pay tribute to — er, himself on a new project.
Timeless rocker Rod Stewart will not only be the subject of a 4-CD box set, he will also release his first album of new rock material in years, which he has described as “just a good, old-fashioned Rod Stewart album [with] a lot of mandolin and acoustic [guitar] and fiddles and good storytelling, I believe, too.” Fans have already heard three songs; ‘She Makes Me Happy,’ ‘Finest Woman‘ and ‘It’s Over.’
We’ll also see archival material from Bob Dylan, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Paul McCartney in May, and celebrate the music of the Moody Blues with a pair of live DVDs that document two very different eras of their career. And if that’s not enough to get your May rockin’, the critically acclaimed Rolling Stones documentary ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ will see a home release.
