Bryan Adams has announced his 15th studio album ‘So Happy It Hurts’.
The Summer of ‘69 hitmaker will release his first new album since 2019’s ‘Shine a Light’, featuring 12 brand new tracks, on March 11.
According to the rocker, he’s been penning the new material in lockdown, which is inspired by the “freedom” of the road
“The pandemic and lockdown really brought home the truth that spontaneity can be taken away. Suddenly all touring stopped, no one could jump in the car and go,” he said.
“The title song So Happy It Hurts is about freedom, autonomy, spontaneity and the thrill of the open road.
“The album of the same name, touches on many of the ephemeral things in life that are really the secret to happiness, most importantly, human connection.”
The title track is out now.
‘So Happy It Hurts’ is available to pre-order on CD and vinyl.
Following the release of the album, Bryan will embark on a 12-date ‘So Happy It Hurts’ UK headline tour, beginning May 13 at the Brighton Centre.
The trek includes a stop at London’s The O2 arena before wrapping at the Blickling Estate in Norfolk on 8 July.
Pre-sale starts at 9 am BST on 13 October, with general release coming two days later.
