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 23. The song is the first from Rodgers forthcoming LP Midnight Rose, slated for release on September 22 via 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.”
