Bryan Adams will release his fifteenth studio album, So Happy It Hurts, on March 11 via BMG. And you can hear the title track right here.
“The pandemic and lockdown really brought home the truth that spontaneity can be taken away,” says the Canadian singer/songwriter. “Suddenly all touring stopped, no one could jump in the car and go. 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 album features 12 new songs co-written by the 61-year-old rocker. The album will be available on all digital platforms, as well as in a variety of physical formats including standard CD, deluxe CD with a lenticular cover and hardbound book and vinyl. An exclusive colour vinyl and a limited edition box set which includes the deluxe CD, vinyl, hardbound book and signed photo are also available for pre-order.
