LOS ANGELES, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, September 12th, from
10:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. ET, Premiere Radio Networks will produce a live
broadcast with multi-Platinum recording artist Bob Seger, celebrating the
release that day of his first studio album in 11 years, Face The Promise.
Seger will spin tracks off the album, talk about its making, take listener
phone calls, e-mails and more. The special will air in New York (WAXQ), Los
Angeles (KLOS), Chicago (WLUP), Boston (WZLX), Philadelphia (WMGK, WZZO),
Detroit (WCSX), Minneapolis (KQRS), Cleveland (WNCX), Indianapolis (WFBQ),
Miami/Ft. Lauderdale (WBGG), San Diego (KGB), Louisville (WWWY), Raleigh
(WRDU) and on over 100 other stations across North America, encompassing
classic rock, mainstream rock, triple-A, AC and country radio formats.
"'Wait For Me' is vintage and yet so craftily produced that it serves
as a connect between the memories of a master and a surprisingly relevant
new chapter," says Billboard of the album's first single.
Face The Promise is a compelling album filled with Seger's keen
observations on the issues we face today: the ever-increasing pressures of
daily life (the rollicking "Wreak This Heart"), the allure of consumerism
("Are You") and addiction ("Won't Stop") and the complexities of modern
relationships -- with our loved ones, other nations and our fragile planet.
Highlights include "No More," a powerful plea for peace, "The Answer's In
The Question," an exquisite duet with Patty Loveless that contemplates the
fleeting nature of love and life, and "Face The Promise," a hard-driving
rocker about the need to break out from the confines of a small town and
"face the promise of the promised land." In addition to 11 Seger originals,
the album features one very cool cover song that Bob recorded with fellow
Michigan native Kid Rock -- "Real Mean Bottle," a song Vince Gill wrote
about Merle Haggard. Seger and Rock trade vocals and slide guitar licks on
their retro hammer rock style rendition of the song, which they
A Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Seger has sold
nearly 50 million albums to date and his hits ("Against The Wind," "Turn
The Page," "Old Time Rock & Roll," "Night Moves," "Hollywood Nights,"
"Katmandu," "Beautiful Loser," to name but a few), are nuanced portraits of
people striving to claim their corner of the American dream. Face The
Promise extends Seger's legacy into the 21st century.
Tune in to the Premiere Radio Networks' special on September 12th to
hear Seger's stories about the making of the Face The Promise. (Check local
