seger album (June 14, 2012)
The term embarrassment of riches applies to Michigan rocker Bob Seger, who told Billboard he has about 75 songs to pick from for his next studio album. Seger, who fittingly will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame at a ceremony taking place tonight in New York City, said, “I’ve got five (songs) that I really, really like, and then I’m sifting through the other 70 that I’ve got in the can. I could actually put (an album) out for this fall right now if I wanted to, but I’m just going to write a little more before I make a final decision.” The as-yet untitled upcoming album will be his first all-new studio collection since 2006’s Face the Promise.
