Bryan Adams has a new label home, his first since signing with A&M Records for one whole dollar in 1978. The Canadian rocker, who soundtracked a good portion of eighties kids' lives with hits like "Cuts Like a Knife" and "Summer of '69," among many others, has inked a deal with BMG to release his next album.
The new record doesn't have a title or release date yet, but Adams said in a recent Instagram chitchat that a "rocker" of a single is coming in October. He also teased possible live dates by year's end, but "so much depends on what happens with COVID."
"As soon as we met with Bryan and his team to listen to the album, we instantly connected with the songs," noted Thomas Scherer, BMG president repertoire & marketing in LA and NYC. "This record is the perfect showcase of his exceptional artistry, performing all the music while also producing. We are very proud to welcome him to BMG, his first new label home in 40 years, and provide our best-in-class global service to a global superstar of his stature."
