Dave Stewart’s new album, Lucky Numbers, will be released this Fall, just over a year since the release of his most recent album, Ringmaster General. It is the third release from Stewart in as many years, and will be the eighth full length solo release for Stewart, who is most well-known for his role of half of the 80s pop act, Eurythmics alongside Annie Lennox.
The first single from Lucky Numbers, ‘Every Single Night’ is currently playing at radio stations nationwide. It can be downloaded via iTunes now at
A lyric video for the single is set to debut Monday, August 19th. Fans can expect more of the 60s infused rock sound that permeated Stewart’s previous pair of releases on Lucky Numbers. Stewart was joined by guitarist Tom Bukovac, drummer Chad Cromwell, bassist Michael Rhodes, pianist Mike Rojas, pedal steel guitarist Dan Dugmore and multi-talented musician Kieran Kiely on Lucky Numbers. Kiely’s talents included songs featuring her on accordion, flute, and the Irish bodhran drum, which can be heard on the album’s lead single.
Stewart pulled in some big names to provide their talents to his latest album. One of the biggest of those guests was none other than Martina McBride. She provided guest vocals on the album’s lead single. Also joining Stewart this time out were: Karen Elson (‘Nashville Snow’), Australian pop star Vanessa Amorosi (‘What’s Wrong With Me’), famed Broadway actress Laura Michelle Kelly and violinist Ann Marie Calhoun (‘You and I’), and Lynn Mabry joined by a gospel choir (Drugs Taught Me a Lesson’ and ‘What’s Wrong with Me’).
Stewart shared his insights on Lucky Numbers in a recent interview about the upcoming album. “The two worlds collide in the most beautiful way,” he said. “I’m singing one thing in my mind, and they’re playing something completely different, but it works.”
