PRESS RELEASE: GET UP!



From PR Newswire:

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Multi-platinum recording artist Bryan Adams is set to release his thirteenth studio album, Get Up (UMe), on October 16th. Produced by famed ELO frontman Jeff Lynne and co-written with his long-time collaborator Jim Vallance, the album features nine new songs and four acoustic versions, tracklisting below. Get Up is available for pre-order now via all digital partners and includes instant-grat track "You Belong To Me," followed by lead track "Brand New Day" available September 7, and the final early download, "Don't Even Try" prior to street date. Preorder link:http://smarturl.it/BryanAdamsGetUp.

A performance clip will be released to accompany the first download "You Belong To Me," and fans can look forward to the official music video for "Brand New Day" directed by Adams featuring BAFTA Award-winning actress, Helena Bonham Carter, and musician Theo Hutchcraft from acclaimed synth-pop duo Hurts.

Get Up is a solid collection of beautifully-crafted rock songs, from the fast and furious up-tempo tracks such as lead song "Brand New Day," "You Belong To Me" and "Thunderbolt," to the gentler songs such as "Don'tEven Try" and "We Did It All," plus the alternative Adams-produced acoustic versions, highlighting Adams' unique voice and depth..

Get Up is a body of work that Adams is truly proud of and with multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer Jeff Lynne - whose credits include The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Randy Newman and Tom Petty, as well as being the co-founder, producer and member of the Traveling Wilburys - at the helm shaping the record, Get Up will sit nicely alongside Adams' earlier classics.

"It came together quite organically," recalls Adams, "song by song, working with Jeff producing over the past couple of years whenever he had time. It was a great partnership as it gave me plenty of time to write the songs, most of which are a collaboration with Jim Vallance. We all worked primarily over the internet fromCanada, Europe and LA, sending demos and parts of songs until we got it right."

"I've always been a big fan of Bryan so getting to work with him was a great pleasure," says Jeff Lynne. "Bryan would send me a demo across the internet, then I would play most of the instruments to make a finished backing track and send it back to him in England. There he would put the lead vocal on to the song and send it back to me in California, 5,400 miles apart! And it's turned out to be a rockin' album!"

"There is a carefree feeling about this album," adds Adams,"and in many ways it is the album I wish I'd been able to make 25 years ago."

Adams continues to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of his critically-acclaimed album Reckless last year, with a sold-out global headlining tour – upcoming North American dates below. This summer, Adams will be co-headlining with Rod Stewart at BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park Festival on September 13th.
