Paul Rodgers, iconic lead vocalist, main songwriter and founding member of legendary rock band Bad Company, will release his first single Living It Up on June 23rd. The song is the first from Rodgers forthcoming LP Midnight Rose, slated for release on September 22nd through Sun Records. This is Rodgers’ first solo album of new music in nearly 25 years.

The eight-track album is a collection of all new, original music completely written by Rodgers, with the exception of Living It Up, which was co-written by Rodgers and his band’s bassist Todd Ronning, and drummer Rick Fedyk.

The album was produced by Cynthia Rodgers and Bob Rock, and was recorded at Roper Recording and The Warehouse over the last 18 months with unique album artwork contributed by Paul and his love of 26 years, Cynthia.

“My new album Midnight Rose grew from sparks of ideas I had,” says Rodgers. “The sparks developed into a raging fire when the band and everyone involved brought their absolute ‘A’ game. I think it is my best album to date, I like it. I hope you do too.”

  1. His voice is sill pretty much the same the music hard rock blues very bad company , but the legend name dropping references , done to death – cheap and easy songwritng- very disappointed coming from Paul Rogers.

  2. His drummer, Jeff Kathan used to be a customer of mine when I lived near Seattle. He mostly came in to get his bracelet fixed. He wore it while he played and just destroyed it about every other month. Cool dude, always bugging me to come see a show when they were on tour. Kinda bummed we never made it out, I’m sure they out on a really good concert.

  3. His best work is with Jimmy Page. The two releases with The Firm. Such a underated band. The Mean Business tour is one of a handful of concerts that I wish I could go back to for just a couple of hours! This song does not do it for me. It reminds me of the lastes Whitesnake cd lyrics.
