Back in November 2020 Bryan Adams announced on social media he had completed work on a new album.
Now we have some actual details about the album.
It will be called “So Happy It Hurts” and will be released on March 11th, 2022.
Bryan’s YouTube channel says of the title track “The pandemic and lockdown really brought home the truth that spontaneity can be taken away. Suddenly you couldn’t just jump in the car and go. This song is about freedom, autonomy, spontaneity and the thrill of the open road.”
“So Happy It Hurts” will be available digitally, as well as a deluxe CD, and a limited edition box set that includes a hardbound book, the album on vinyl and an autographed photo. You can pre-order the album now.
Bryan also let us know that he’s kicking off a Vegas residency at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas starting on November 10th, 2021 and running to November 20th, 2021.
Watch the video below and below that check out the lyrics from the song.
SO HAPPY IT HURTS
Driving down Trans-Canada 1
Top down I got the radio on - alright
Gonna get there tonight
A little closer every bend in the road
Motor runnin, think I’m gonna explode - alright
I got you in my sights
Blacktop burnin underneath my wheels
It’s crazy how I feel
I’m so happy it hurts - I’m so happy it hurts
I’m so glad it’s outrageous - I’m so happy it hurts
That stupid grin on my face - must be some kind of curse
You put a spell on me baby - I’m so happy it hurts
The sun is shinin’ and there’s no more rain
Step on the gas and forget all the pain
Let it go - out on the open road
Rocky mountains in the rearview mirror
I can’t wait til I get there
All right - I’m gonna drive all night
Been around the world - there ain’t much I’ve missed
But I ain’t felt nothin’ like this
I’m so happy it hurts...
