Robin Trower has announced a new studio album, Coming Closer to the Day. 

Set for a March 22 release via Provogue/Mascot Label Group, it was recorded at Studio 91 in Newbury, England with engineer Sam Winfield. You can check out its first single, “Tide of Confusion,” below.

Regarding the new songs, Trower said, “‘Diving Bell’ is probably my favorite track on the album. ‘Truth Or Lies,’ that one was quite hard to pull off. I love the song, but I recorded it once and wasn’t happy with it, so I started from scratch again. It’s got quite a strong early R&B flavor to it. That song is not really about me. I’m writing from the viewpoint of a guy whose loved one has been messing around. ‘Someone Of Great Renown,’ again, that song isn’t about me, but it’s maybe someone that I’d like to be.”

“‘Lonesome Road,’” he continued, “that’s about me touring and asking how long I can go on with it. That’s definitely coming from my heart and head. ‘Ghosts’ is about things from the past where you didn’t do right in your personal life. ‘Don’t Ever Change’ is an out-and-out love song: a very nice, easy vibe, but still quite soulful.”

About the subject matter of the title track, the 73-year-old Trower said, “I’m saying that I’m nearer the end than the beginning. But that doesn’t scare me. Not at all. If I went tomorrow, I’d feel like I’d been blessed with being able to achieve an incredible amount as a musician.”

Trower will also be heading out on a U.S. tour, the full itinerary for which can be seen below.
