Bryan Adams and Wal-Mart team for album
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Canadian rocker Bryan Adams' latest album, "11," will be released in the United States on May 13 exclusively via Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores, his publicist said Tuesday.
The set has been out internationally since last month on Universal, hitting No. 1 in Canada, No. 2 in Germany and No. 6 in the U.K.
His last studio outing, 2004's "Room Service," wasn't released in the United States until the following year and sold just 44,000 units here, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Up until "Room Service," Adams had spent his entire career at A&M Records, enjoying such hits as "Run to You" and "Summer of '69."
Like "Room Service," Adams recorded the new songs in hotel rooms and other locales while on the road. As the title indicates, it his 11th studio release.
Adams, who is currently touring South America, will play about 16 acoustic shows across the United States in May. He will return in July for nine double-bill shows with Foreigner, followed by seven opening slots for Rod Stewart.
