Album of the Day
Human [Expanded Edition]
Rod Stewart started the new millennium on a new label, Atlantic, with his nineteenth studio album, HUMAN. Fittingly, the 2001 collection shows the performer trying on new styles, in this case contemporary R&B and dance music. Working with a team of producers, Stewart sourced 11 fine songs including “Run Back Into Your Arms,” the Adult Contemporary charting “I Can't Deny It” and "Don't Come Around Here." The last of these features Helicopter Girl as a duet partner; elsewhere Rod recruits guitarists Slash, Mark Knopfler and Jesse Johnson to lend their talents to the cause. The Expanded Edition of HUMAN adds five bonus tracks including a version of Prince's “Peach”; we'll give the album a spin now to wish Rod Stewart a happy birthday.
