Another Country is the twenty-ninth studio album by British singer-songwriter Rod Stewart. It was released on 23 October 2015 through Capitol Records. It was produced by Stewart and Kevin Savigar. Stewart released his twenty-eighth studio album, Time, in 2013. The album contained eleven songs written or co-written by Stewart. Commenting on Time, Stewart stated, "I've found that the only way to write songs is to be as personal and honest as possible, And when my last album was so well-received it gave me the confidence to keep on writing, and to examine and write about different things. It also gave me the freedom to experiment with different sounds like reggae, ska and Celtic melodies."
Perhaps nobody was as surprised by Rod Stewart's return to songwriting as Rod Stewart. Rod hadn't bothered composing a tune in nearly two decades when he decided to write a brand new bunch of songs for 2013's Time, an album inspired in part by his 2012 memoir Rod: The Autobiography. Arriving after ten years of Great American Songbook albums, the change in style and song was refreshing, something fans (and some critics) noted and, people pleaser that he is, Rod decided to give them what they wanted for Another Country: another set of originals, augmented by a slyly chosen cover in Steve Harley's "A Friend For Life" (on the Deluxe Edition, he shows a bit of cheek by once again singing Python Lee Jackson's "In A Broken Dream," which he sang back in 1978)…

Southern Drawl arrives 14 years after Alabama's last secular album, 2001's When It All Goes South – a record that reached four on Billboard's Country Albums chart but is largely forgotten – but a better way to put it into context is that it is the group's first record since Brad Paisley kick-started a new millennial Alabama revival thanks to his 2011 hit "Old Alabama."
