Watch The Video For Rod Stewart’s New Single, ‘I Can’t Imagine’
Rod Stewart has released I Can’t Imagine, the music video for the third release from his highly anticipated 31st studio album, The Tears Of Hercules – out on 12 November.
The video spotlights Stewart with his band as they perform the upbeat love song inside a magnificent lakeside mansion near Las Vegas. Available now, I Can’t Imagine is the third release from the upcoming album, following Hold On and One More Time.
Stewart’s latest is his fourth new album of original songs since 2013, when he reconnected with his songwriting muse to record Time, a chart-topping, double-platinum album in the U.K. For Tears Of Hercules, Stewart wrote nine of the album’s 12 songs, including the latest single I Can’t Imagine, which he penned in dedication to his wife, Special Constable Penelope Lancaster Stewart.
To make The Tears Of Hercules, Stewart once again worked with Kevin Savigar, the keyboardist-songwriter-composer who has co-produced Stewart’s last three studio albums: Time (2013), Another Country (2015), and Blood Red Roses (2018). Their long-running collaboration began in 1978 when Stewart invited Savigar to join his studio and touring band. In addition to One More Time, they also co-wrote the standout tracks Hold On and All My Days. Stewart co-wrote Born To Boogie (A Tribute To Marc Bolan) with Emerson Swinford, the guitarist in his band. Stewart, Savigar, and Swinford share songwriting credit on the new single, I Can’t Imagine.
Stewart has always had a gift for making any song sound like it was written just for him. That’s certainly true of the album’s title track, a powerful ballad written by Marc Jordan. Through the years, Stewart has recorded other songs written by Jordan, including Rhythm Of My Heart (#5 U.S./#3 U.K.) from Vagabond Heart and This from his gold-certified album, A Spanner in the Works. Additional covers include Stewart’s joyful take on Soul Brother Six’s Some Kind Of Wonderful and his stirring rendition of Johnny Cash’s These Are My People.

Stewart has earned countless of the industry’s highest awards, including two inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the ASCAP Founders Award for songwriting, New York Times bestselling author, Grammy Living Legend, and in 2016 he officially became “Sir Rod Stewart” after being knighted at Buckingham Palace for his services to music and charity.
