New music by Rod Stewart
In 2021, the indefatigable Stewart releases not one, but two records as well as a Greatest Hits album.
Not a bad year.
The first offering, “Cupid,” is 16 romance songs. With choice covers from Cat Stevens and Van Morrison plus a few originals, it’s a perfect accompaniment to any Valentine’s Day.
Album two, the 31st in his career, is the more traditional pop record “Les Larmes d’Hercule”. AllMusic called the 12 tracks “alternately puzzling, absurd, sweet and endearing.”
