Happy Holidays from David Foster

Hey everyone,

I hope the season is treating you well and that you’ve had a chance to hear my latest holiday CD “Merry And Bright“, available now at Starbucks! This year I had the opportunity to introduce you to one of my favorite new bands, Dirty Loops, and we also released great new music from Bryan Adams, Sarah McLachlan, Barry Manilow and Smokey Robinson (to name a few). I look forward to more great music in 2015 starting with Diana Krall‘s “Wallflower” due out on February 3rd, a debut release from Charles Perry, music from a sultry new artist that I’m working with, Brenna Whitaker , and an exciting Disney project featuring all of your favorite artists! Thank you for all of your support this year and stay tuned for some exciting news which I plan to share very soon…

Wishing you a Hap...

Bryan Adams Discusses New Album ‘Tracks Of My Years,’ Miley Cyrus And Two Forgotten Decades

Bryan Adams had such an obsessive work ethic early in his career that he’s forgotten entire stretches of the ’80s and ’90s.
“I wish I could be kidding you,” he said in a phone interview on Monday afternoon. “But I don’t actually remember a lot of my career.”
The Canadian singer, responsible for several Top 10 hits including “Summer of ’69” and “Everything I Do (I Do It For You)” blames the “volume of work” he went through for his memory loss.

Bryan Adams’ image is that of a denim-clad hard rocker from Canada with massive mainstream appeal.

His 65 million in album sales worldwide over the last three-and-a-half decades speaks to that.

So some of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s covers the Kingston, Ont.,-born-North Vancouver-raised musician chose for his new disc Tracks of My Years, out Tuesday, might surprise his hardcore fans. Think the sunny pop of The Association’s Never My Love or the R&B soul of The Manhattans’ Kiss and Say Goodbye.

“I hope there are good surprises,” said the 54-year-old singer-songwriter-guitarist in Toronto recently.

“Instead of doing the songs that were the ones that really changed things for me, I decided I would do songs that were also a...

1. “You can’t do that” originally recorded by The Beatles

“It’s really hard to do a Beatles song without fucking it up. [Laughs] I have a song called Back To You on my MTV album [Unplugged], and I thought that Any Time At All could work the same way – very strummy. And it did. It worked out beautifully.

“Everybody knows the song, but it’s not like one of the Beatles songs that gets played all the time. Because it was a little more off the radar, that’s why I was interested in it.
