Rocker Bryan Adams marks new album 'Ultimate' for release Nov. 3

TORONTO — Bryan Adams is planning a new album in what has already been a busy year for the "Run To You" rocker.

The Kingston, Ont.-born musician pegged Nov. 3 for the release of "Ultimate," his first studio effort in two years.

Adams teased fans with a 20-second clip of the pop ballad "Please Stay" on Facebook, while saying the single will be released on Oct. 13.

He didn't offer any more details about the album but promised more information would be coming soon.

Adams has been keeping a packed concert schedule.

Last weekend he played the Invictus Games closing ceremony alongside Bruce Springsteen.

Earlier this year, he co-hosted the Juno Awards with comedian Russell Peters before closing the telecast with a multi-generational supergroup version of "Summer of '69" that included Sarah McLachlan and Alessia Cara.

Adams is also working on the songs for a new Broadway musical based on Julia Roberts film "Pretty Woman" due in late 2018.

He's doing all of this while in the midst of a world tour for his 2015 album "Get Up," though he was forced to cancel an upcoming show in Puerto Rico in the wake of hurricane Maria.
