|Known the world over for his signature brand of feel-good rock music, acclaimed singer/songwriter Bryan Adams releases the title track from his forthcoming studio album, So Happy It Hurts via BMG. |
“The pandemic and lockdown really brought home the truth that spontaneity can be taken away. Suddenly all touring stopped, no one could jump in the car and go,” says Adams. “The title song ‘So Happy It Hurts’ is about freedom, autonomy, spontaneity and the thrill of the open road. The album of the same name, touches on many of the ephemeral things in life that are really the secret to happiness, most importantly, human connection.”
The album So Happy it Hurts, scheduled for release March 11th, 2022, marks Bryan Adams’ 15th release and features 12 new songs co-written by him. The album will be available on all digital platforms, as well as in a variety of physical formats including standard CD, deluxe CD with a lenticular cover and hardbound book and vinyl. An exclusive colour vinyl and a limited edition box set which includes the deluxe CD, vinyl, hardbound book and signed photo are also available.
Adams, whose live concerts have established him as one of the world’s best rock singers of our time, has announced a 12-date So Happy It Hurts UK headline tour for May and July 2022 including London’s O2 Arena on May 26th.

I’ve changed. Adele’s changed. And this is an opportunity to celebrate how we’ve both evolved, and how we’ve also both remained faithful to our dearest themes. It’s all the same, but different.” The video begins in the same house the pair used to shoot the video for Adele’s 2015 smash single “Hello.”Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Adele – Easy On Me
