Legendary rocker Rod Stewart previewed the tracks from his upcoming album for a group of journalists in New York City on Thursday (March 7), and at least according to one published report, the record really is the throwback to his classic sound that Stewart has been promising.

Titled ‘Time,’ the album marks the first time Stewart has penned new material for release in more than a decade. He credits longtime collaborator Jim Cregan for inspiring that change.

“About a year ago, I was sitting at my house in England, and [Cregan] came around and said, ‘Come on, let’s try to write a song,’” Stewart said last October. “And I said, ‘No, I can’t be bothered. Those days are over.’ But we sat down, I started humming a melody and he took it away and sent it back and said, ‘Listen, this is pretty good,’ so I wrote some words for it and ever since then it’s just been flowing like a river.”

According to Billboard, the songs Capitol Records previewed on Thursday were an amalgam of Stewart’s past influences, with one cut reminiscent of his 1988 hit ‘Lost in You.’ Another song featured the type of Celtic instrumentation similar to ‘Maggie May,’ while other tracks called to mind some of his later disco leanings. Five of the seven tracks previewed were up-tempo, with two ballads rounding out the set.

No track listing has been finalized for the album, which is slated for release on May 7.
