Rocker Bob Seger is set to release his first studio recording in eight years.

The Old Time Rock & Roll hitmaker's new album, Ride Out, will hit stores on 14 October (14) and will feature covers of John Hiatt's Detroit Made and Wilco and Billy Bragg's California Stars.

A statement from Seger reads: “I feel really good about this record. This album touches on how I think a lot of us feel about finding our place in a more complicated world - from how we appreciate things as simple and pure as love, to navigating through the corruption and violence that permeates the news. It sums up a lot of feelings I have about a variety of subjects.”
