Rocker Bob Seger is set to release his first studio recording in eight years.

The “Old Time Rock & Roll” hitmaker’s new album, “Ride Out,” will hit stores on Oct. 14 and will feature covers of John Hiatt’s “Detroit Made” and Wilco and Billy Bragg’s “California Stars.”

A statement from Seger reads: “I feel really good about this record. This album touches on how I think a lot of us feel about finding our place in a more complicated world – from how we appreciate things as simple and pure as love, to navigating through the corruption and violence that permeates the news. It sums up a lot of feelings I have about a variety of subjects.”
