The album will be Rod Stewart's 30th solo album, and his first since Another Country three years ago.

He revealed the news while he and Cyndi Lauper were speaking to US radio ahead of their joint US tour.

"My album's finished," said Rod. "We're not sure when it's coming out. It's called Blood Red Roses. It's absolutely fantastic. Even I say it myself!"

He added: "We don't know whether we're going to bring it out in May or June or September. There's a big discussion going on. If they bring it out in May and we're on tour in June, I will be [performing songs from it on tour], otherwise I won't. No, probably not.

"You know how difficult it is to try and convince people to listen to brand new songs when you've got so many songs that they want to hear. We'll see how it goes."

We're now just hoping he'll announce a UK tour, pronto!
