(US) 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.
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.
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 body of work that Adams is truly proud off 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 from Canada, Europe and LA, sending demos and parts of songs until we got it right.”
Adams continues to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of his critically-acclaimed album Reckless last year, with a sold-out global headlining tour (click here for full tour itinerary). This summer, Adams will co-headlining with Rod Stewart at BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park Festival on September 13th.
