Rod Stewart is working on his first new album of original songs in more than 10 years, and he says the material will reflect his own personal experiences as twice-divorced dad.
The British paper The Sun quotes Stewart as saying of the new album, "I've tackled what I call grown-up problems. There are songs with advice to my kids -- and a song about divorce." He adds, "There are hardly any ballads on it at the moment."
Stewart, a father of eight, is currently on his third marriage, to Penny Lancaster, with whom he has two young sons. He also became a grandfather last year when his daughter Kimberly gave birth to a daughter of her own, Delilah, who's turning one this month.
According to The Sun, the album -- Rod's first collection of new songs since 2001's Human -- will be released in December. Stewart also has a Christmas album coming out that should arrive before that disc.
