Kid Rock has confirmed he will release a new album next month - and has no plans to run for senate and pursue a political career
Kid Rock is releasing a new album - but it won't be sound-tracking his political ambitions as he has no plans to run for the Senate
The 'All Summer Long' singer had made waves in September when he posted a bizarre campaign statement on his official website, but now he's revealed that it was a joke to promote his upcoming record 'Sweet Southern Sugar'.
Speaking to radio host Howard Stern on his Sirius XM show, he said: ''F**k no, I'm not running for Senate. Are you kidding me? Who f***ing couldn't figure that out? I'm releasing a new album. I'm going on tour too ... Are you f***ing s****ing me?''
The 46-year-old musician described the stunt as the ''most creative thing'' he's ever attempted, and said it gave him an insight into peoples' ''true colours''.
He added: ''[Pretending to run was] the worst advice I ever gave myself, but it's been the most creative thing I've ever done. And I've gotten to see everyone's true colours.''
While the political aspirations weren't genuine, Kid Rock - whose real name is Robert Ritchie - is set to release his first album since 2015's 'First Kiss' next month.
His 13th record - the first LP he's recorded in iconic music city Nashville, Tennessee - 'Sweet Southern Sugar' will come out on November 3, featuring recent singles 'Greatest Show On Earth', 'Po-Dunk' and 'Tennessee Mountain Top'.
He will then embark on a huge US tour in 2018, kick starting in Nashville on January 19 and concluding the long run on the road in March with a show at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
'Sweet Southern Sugar' track list:
1. Greatest Show On Earth
3. Tennessee Mountain Top
4. I Wonder
5. American Rock N' Roll
6. Back To The Otherside
7. Raining Whiskey
8. Stand The Pain
