Sir Rod Stewart has shared a new track from his upcoming new orchestral album, and it's a beauty.

The legendary singer-songwriter has teamed up with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for a new compilation album titled You're In My Heart.

The album features new orchestral arrangements of Rod's classic hits, mostly using the vocals of the original songs.

Rod has now shared a video of the new version of arguably his most famous hit, 'Maggie May', and it's excellent:

What we love most is seeing the utter joy on Rod's face as he can't believe his luck while watching the orchestra work their magic.

The album will be released November 22 in two editions, and also features the likes of 'Sailing' and 'I Don't Want to Talk About It'.

Not only that, but the album will include a new version of 'It Takes Two' featuring Robbie Williams, and a brand-new song titled 'Stop Loving Her Today'.

The album coincides with the continuation of Rod's biggest ever UK tour, with live performances in November and December. 

Earlier this year, Rod revealed that he was now in remission after secretly battling prostate cancer for a number of years.
