Bob Seger releases new single Detroit Made

Bob Seger has released a cover of John Hiatt’s “Detroit Made” as his new single.

Billboard reports the song’s release was timed specifically to the Woodward Dream Cruise, an annual car event held in the Detroit suburbs.

Seger produced and recorded the song in Nashville, using Silver Bullet Band singers Shaun Murphy, Laura Creamer and Barb Payton as well as recent Silver Bullet guitarist Rob McNelley.

"I stumbled on 'Detroit Made' on [SiriusXM] Outlaw Country," Seger told Billboard during the tour last year. "I downloaded it, and that's a great [show] opener for us. My initial plan was to have Kid Rock do it with me, but he was just so busy with the start of his tour that we weren't able to do it. I thought it would be great."

Hiatt released "Detroit Made", a musical mash note to the Buick Electra 225, on his 2011 album “Dirty Jeans And Mudslide Hymns.”

No details about a new album have yet been announced, however, though a fall release has been rumored.

The new project will be Seger’s first since 2006's “Face The Promise.”
